Now this is disturbing. The Eggcorn Database presents an ever-growing collection of bizarre linguistic mangling. Eggcorn? Ah, yes. It’s an expression from the Language Log for those occasions where someone uses the wrong word, typically a homophone, or a moderately close approximation for one. Examples include:
- Floorless for flawless
- Turban for turbine
And many, many more.
Thanks to Michèle for that one.
