Default Tangentially -- Lyle's favorite word? ;-)

I've been reading a lot of your articles, Lyle, and I've noticed that you use "tangentially" quite often -- perhaps every article. Since I've rarely seen that word used so often, I wondered why you liked it so much. :-)

Obviously I'm not Lyle, but I think I might have something to suggest as a(n) (serious) answer. 1- Lyle is an original mind and steers clear of commonplaces and worn-out clichés 2- self-admittedly, he does go off on tangents when he writes an article or when he is being interviewed 3- "tangentially" and "semi-tangentially" (love this one!) would be a suitable term for 1- and 2-. Keen sense of observation ecables.

I'd nominate some candidate words but can't list them without violating at least two rules.
