comment Is “square” a synonym for “roundabout” (noun)?
@posdef: I had not! Are you suggesting that's generally the case, or are you just pointing it out for that particular one? (e.g. another example)

comment Is the phrase “refuse to accept” redundant?
Well you can refuse to refuse something too, but that doesn't mean you accept it. Or deny the denial of something, etc.

comment Is “reflectionally” a word?
@Frank: Good point, it didn't occur to me to search Google Books. I just did a web search and didn't find anything nontechnical (aside from the wiktionary entry) so that's why I asked.

comment Is “reflectionally” a word?
For what it's worth, I just realized that I get a spelling error for "rotationally" as well.

Regardless, since my curiosity is piqued I would like to know the answer to this question itself, not to get sidetracked about the proper word usage. (But thank you for the suggestions nonetheless.)

comment Is “reflectionally” a word?
@DanBron: Yeah, but since it's in a mathematical context rather than a biological one I want to emphasize the word "reflection" (since that's the operation).

comment Is “reflectionally” a word?
@PeterShor: Yeah, but it doesn't fit well in a sentence in which the others use the original form, disregarding the redundancy that curiousdannii pointed out. (e.g. "shapes A and B are rotationally and reflectionally symmetric" sounds much better than"shapes A and B are rotationally symmetric and symmetric under reflection".)
