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.

"parity" for "parody"

“Parroty” for “parody” has been discussed at … hp?id=1409

And my own discussion of “parody” for “parity” is at … hp?id=5591

I decided to flip that last one around and see to what degree it may be reversible. I found a very few substitutions of “parity” for “parody”—probably less than 20 unique hits. Examples:

It’s a PARITY jackoff, the name was spelled that way on purpose!

I’m guessing it’s a parity on all the GS vrs.whatever threads?

It’s a parity of Team Fortress 2’s Spy
If he didn’t have a mask it would just be a Ditto with a knife, no one would get it…

It’s a parity of the comments Geraldine Ferraro made about Obama.

And here’s one with two different (mis)spellings!:

It’s a parity. Say it. Parroty.
