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: Nasty roamers

Good one. Got that ol’ semantic sizzle.

Trying to remember who said “I don’t like to spread rumors, but it’s hard to know what else to do with them.”

Hatching new language, one eggcorn at a time.

we would be too simple-minded to understand it* .
