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.

In a hard beat

Google on the title phrase, and most hits will be phrases that seem to mean, “in a very short time” – what most people express as “in a heartbeat”.

I thought to search for this phrase when I heard a CNN commentator say, “in a heartbreak”.
