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.

annunciate instead of enunciate

Found here ( … phtml#more) after the second photo.

I assume the sentence should read, “She joked with the crowd on her song about fake tans, instructing them how to properly enunciate Orange.” Annunciate means “announce” or “proclaim,” and makes me think of Rennaisance oil paintings with the Virgin Mary. But speaking loudly and with clear articulation, “enunciation,” can be considered a characteristic of “annunciation.”
