powerhouse » powerhorse
Spotted in the wild:
- (1) This is a real powerhorse of a game, on two CDs; perhaps too powerful for the average machine in the home today. (2) If you need a powerhorse to cope with large flies, big or windy rivers and/or heavy sinkers there is nothing better. (3) Although it is a small kiln, it is a powerhorse for fusing and worked well for annealing. (link)
Reported on Philip Hofmeister’s blog for 4 February 2005. Hofmeister notes:
“Powerhorse” gets about 5,420 whG, while “powerhouse” gets 2,540,000, so it’s only about a 0.2 % eggcorn by the standards of Language Log . And for some reason, a huge proportion of the examples involve computers and software.
