Registrations were closed for a long time because of forum spam, but I have re-opened them on a trial basis.

The forum administrator (chris dot waigl at gmail dot com) reserves the right to request users to plausibly demonstrate that they are real people with an interest in the topic of eggcorns. Otherwise they may be removed with no further justification. Likewise, accounts that have not been used for posting may be removed.

Thanks for your understanding.

Mixtape or mix tape vs. mixed tape

“I am going to make you a mixed tape” seems to have become “I am going to make you a mixtape”. Anybody else notice that?

Re: Mixtape or mix tape vs. mixed tape

This may be just sloppy. Mix may refer to the production process for audio recordings of songs; It may also refer to a collection of songs, as in a “dance mix.” Running the words together is ugly, but probably not an eggcorn.
