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.

com[m]emb[e]rate << commemorate

“Commemorate” is one of a complex of words descending from the Latin “memorare.” Some people seem to think that another Latin-derived word is a “member” of commemorate. Commemberate (under various spellings) seems to occur fairly often on the web. You can view examples of “comemberate” here.

Hatching new language, one eggcorn at a time.
