Around 1960, Bjarni Jónsson was analyzing the structural consequences of P. M. Whitman’s solution to the word problem for free lattices [448], and made the following observation. Whitman had shown that every element in Free(X) can be represented by a unique (up to associativity and commutativity) shortest term ω.
