interfere » interfear

Classification: English – questionable

Spotted in the wild:

  • Think about who Death must be as an individual. He needs to be strong, for the emotions of humans may interfear with his duty. He must be merciful, taking lives before thier time, because it’s just the better thing to do. A being of Love, sympathy and strength. (Tarot Forum)

This is a borderline eggcorn: a simple spelling error, based on uncertainty how to render the sound in _interfere_, is more common than the case where anxiety plays a role.

This eggcorn was originally provided by [Matt Read](, from his own writing.
