Getting back to Glenn's example (I'm a bit behind on my e-mail):

This is a nice example (particularly for Ada) because of what you
get as you trim the ends (and adjust case, punctuation, and spacing):
"Adam, I'm Ada." -- Maybe he wasn't talking to Eve!
"Dam, I mad!" -- Weak on spelling and grammar, but it makes some sense.
"Am I Ma?" -- Mother has amnesia?
"mim" -- At least it's a word!
"I" -- Ditto
