Surprisingly, we seem to have overlooked in this forum/database the rather obvious insertion of “sure” into “certain/certainly.” Quite common on the web.
: “It does sound like a good concept. It will suretainly require allot of coding to be done, especially if you play it in a heavily populated city.”
: “Thanks for your answers, but I’d really need a ‘I’m absolutely suretain it’s this….’”
: “I’m quite suretain I won’t be content with about 70% of it”
: “Oh suretainly it would be a waste of time and money. If you go just for the sake of going. It’s bizarre, the amount of people in University doing useless arts degrees…. .”
The last quotation, by the way, is a reply to the question “Anyone think that college is a waste of time and money?” Why do we pay comedians to make this stuff up?
Hatching new language, one eggcorn at a time.
