In Snapper & Troyer's book Metric Affine Geometry the word "reality" at one point occurs in the phrase (IIRC) "reality problems", meaning questions about whether the imaginary part of a complex number is indeed zero. And in a paper I had in the American Mathematical Monthly in 2003, I used the word "affinity" in some phrase like "the desired affinity follows", which the context made clear meant something like: "thus we have proved that this mapping is affine, as desired." No one complained about that, so I take it that I was "licensed" in the sense in which that word applies to poets and dramaturges.
So now some muse or demon rested on my shoulder and inspired me to write "realizing the denominator", meaning multiplying the numerator and denominator by the complex conjugate of the denominator. I've never seen it or heard it. Googling indicates that it is far from unprecedented, even though I've never come across it, but of course so are many offenses against good usage.
