Abstract: The methods introduced by J. M. Osborn for isolating those polynomial identities worth studying in commutative algebras are here modified to yield three theorems for anticommutative algebras. The first establishes a practical criterion for the irreducibility of polynomial identities; the others list all canonical polynomials of low degree that are irreducible relative to anticommutativity.
