Dear scholarly journal article writers,

Really? Really? Perhaps you inserted it for the amusement of your readers. Perhaps you did not catch the mistake as, I concede, they do sound somewhat similar. Whatever the reason, an epitaph is not the same as an epithet, and our language is not, as you insist, 'tilled' with them. Were you a bit soused when you wrote this?

Off to compile a bibliography, thanks for the chuckle.

actually, they meant "epigrams", and "encrusted", respectively.

glad to help,
