Narrowing: Master, have I ever been calorific?

A foreshortening, in every other way you were!
A scanting, you have been!
A triviality, you are!
A delicacy, you will constantly be!

Xenia Epigram
Please take from me this page,
     focussing on the term narrowing
Used by many a linguist sage,
     seeking a term for reducing

Just wait a bit and you may find,
     better than any an anagram,
when coders have more time,
     a much better fitting epigram.

So smart that guy from Lake Polly.
