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.

Re: renouned author

I suppose you don’t want to state the obvious connection between authors and nouns, is that it? Or point out the dissonance of the implied verbed to noun, which is somewhat akin to the neurological difficulty of reading aloud the colours green and red . See also reknowned. Other brief forum dalliances of renoun here and here.
