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.

My daughter is 13, and uses this often enough to make me think she hasn’t heard a word I have ever said! But to her it makes sense, so I thought I would google it, and I was shocked at how many people say and write this. So, how do I convince her that even though it makes sense, it is still incorrect usage?
