Re: renouned author

I suppose you don’t want to state the obvious connection between authors and nouns, is that it? Or point out the dissonance of the implied verbed to noun, which is somewhat akin to the neurological difficulty of reading aloud the colours green and red . See also reknowned. Other brief forum dalliances of renoun here and here.
