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.

I went to the bank to do inventory on my grandad’s coins that were in his safety posit box

Re: Safety posit box

Catalyzed by the confusion about whether the term is “safe deposit box” or “safety deposit box.” Further discussion of the confusion at Straightdope.

Hatching new language, one eggcorn at a time.
