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.

'carbon dated' for 'carbonated'

A fairly common substitution despite its manifest absurdity. Examples:

Okay, so you’re standing in the middle of your living room, chatting with friends and enjoying a lovely, cool, carbondated beverage of your choice.

The worst offender to my numbness was any kind of carbondated beverage (including plain carbondated water). forum/forum1/?cmd=follow&fu=4943&zu=1082

I have an 11 yr. old daughter who does not like carbondated beverages or tea.

i stopped into a Safeway to buy some bottled water (the carbondated kind that
tastes like strawberry-kiwi) ...

I have avoided carbondated soft drinks for a long time.

I drink these alot when I feel like I cant drink another drop of water. ... “non carbondated…excellent for those who have given up soda. Full of flavor.” nutritional+product+detail+Fruit+Water+cqk.html – 85k -
