estraingement << estrangement

For those who find estrangement not stressful enough, there’s “estraingement:”

Abe Lincoln bio: “ There was certainly a profound estraingement between the two men.”

Reality TV forum: “They seemd very comfortable together and to me there was no sign or hint of any estraingement.”

Car forum: “ In 1988 his last year he even had an estraingement from Piero Lardi regarding John Barnard and the new atmo Ferrari’s and it is thought that he died still not fully reconciled with his son.”

Hatching new language, one eggcorn at a time.
