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.

"inn table" for "end table"

I ran across this one on an email list last night. (Presumably for the common hotel arrangement of two beds with an end table between?) Found it echoed in a few places across the web:

“We got a two bedroom unit, with full bath and mini kitchenette. One room had two single beds seperated by an inn table.” … sland.html

“Next to her on the small inn table a glass of white wine sat, reaching for the crystal glass, the maiden took a few sips, swirling the contents before each sip.” … &type_id=3

“Well depending on the size of the crate you could do some folk painting , stenciling on them and use them as a plant stand, or inntable next to a chair.” … msg_138953
