"go inside with" for coincide with

I came across an excerpt of a book, The Untied Stats for American and other computer-assisted writing errors, by William Carroll, 2005. It’s a collection of errors gleaned from student essays, errors which he says have increased with the advent of computers. Silicisms, then. I’ve included one of the Yalts to be found on the word wide web.

This one struck me as particularly interesting, as a neat double-yolker. To “go inside with” sounds like acceptance, a consensual movement.

Music interview yalt
That’s an interesting question. I think there’s no question that my playing has changed somewhat to go inside with what the conductors have wanted.

This go-insides with the prophets in Ezek 47:22-23. And this agrees with the Brit Chadasha, (N.T.) in Rom 11:17 being grafted into the Olive Tree (Y’srael) Very Happy

Canada politics blog
La Presse leads, the Post fronts, and The National, CTV News, the Globe, the Star, and the Citizen all go inside with stories about how Canada’s political leaders continue to jockey for public attention only a couple of days before an expected election call.

RV enthusiasts
Hi I have 6 speed Alison trany and the test indicator numbers that come up don’t go inside with what the manual says.

Fiddy cent: No holds barred
“It’s exciting cause what I did for my album insert is I picked photographs to go inside with the lyrical content of some of the songs to give you a visual of what I’m saying?”

Church against China
It was unclear if the apparent lenient decision was timed to go inside with Kobia’s visit.

Re: "go inside with" for coincide with

I love double-yolkers, and “go inside with” is a good and surprising example. I’d love to know how users thought this worked. Is coincidence thought of as being a kind of intimacy here, with the two things being all snug and inside together? Or is it that the insides of both things are pictured as lining up in a one-to-one analogy? Or something else?

It’s interesting too that in the couple of online instances where the writer uses “insides” instead of “inside” (your citation #2 is one of them), they clearly realize that something is odd about the phrase because they hyphenate “go” and “insides.”

In the fifth citation, I think 50 really meant “go inside”—he’s talking about the physical contents of the album package. And it’s possible (but I’m not sure) that in the fourth citation, the writer is using a variant of that journalistic phrase “to go inside something” (as in “the report goes inside the tension between Al Qaeda operatives and local tribal leaders”), meaning to provide deep coverage of a topic; reading the larger context didn’t resolve this for me. But “go inside with” clearly does exist out in the wild.

I’m glad you pointed us to the book, though it looks a bit tedious—I was bored after a couple of pages. There must be a really good, detailed and penetrating study of typographical errors out there somewhere, but I’ve never run across it.

“Go-inside” is unexpected, and-if real-a prime eggcorn.

Hatching new language, one eggcorn at a time.
