Broken Letter

By broken letter is not meant the breaking of the shanks of any of the letters, but the breaking of the orderly succession in which the letters stood in a line, page, or form, &c. and mingling the letters together, these mingled letters being called pie. — M.
Instead of Broken Letter it is now styled Broken Matter.
