The Great Eggcorn Hunt II; index to 2005-2006 Forum posts

In 2007, the year that I joined the Eggcorn Forum, I read through all of the previous posts. Now, seven years later, I have read them again and prepared an index of all the thousand-plus posts in 2005 (two months) and 2006.

Chris set up the Forum in the fall of 2005 to encourage discussion of individual eggcorns. The early posters, however, made light use of the interactive capabilities of the Forum. There are an astounding number of uncommented posts. Some of the best finds lie by themselves, like dead jokes. (To put a number to it: in the first half of 2006, the Forum averaged about a third of a comment per post. We currently average close to two comments per post.) The sort of community that arrived after 2007 was a long time arriving. One reason for this tardiness, I suspect, is that attention in 2006 was divided between the Forum and the still-active Eggcorn Database.

The Forum in its first fourteen months saw the arrival of a large number of members who were—to put it diplomatically—unclear on the eggcorn concept. The ever-vigilant Pat made some attempt to respond to the jostle of puns, malapropism, and mondegreens, but running herd on this bunch of yowling cats would have required him to clone himself many times over.

The cast of players, I noticed, changed in mid 2006. Until then, Ken Lakritz dominated the Forum posts, while Ben Zimmer, joining the pioneering Arnold Zwicky and Chris Waigl, became a major presence at the Eggcorn Database. By the fall of 2006, Peter Forster and Joe Krozel seemed to be running a tag-team match in the Forum and activity in the Database slowed to a crawl. Pat’s contributions run through all the Forum posts by Ken, Peter, and Joe. His work is that of a player-coach, sometimes joining the team on the field, sometimes commenting from the sidelines – a role not unlike the one he played from 2007 to 2012.

The habit of checking for previous posts on a topic and linking related threads. a common practice on the Forum in the years after 2006, was unformed in the early days. Certain expressions have multiple independent posts devoted to them. Ferreting out the first posters of certain eggcorns for the index was a major headache. I found myself constantly deleting previous records.

I ran into a second, less solvable problem while preparing the index, an issue pointed out to me by David Bird. The chronological list of Forum threads is organized by the last post in a thread, not the first. If any Forum member after 2006 added a post to a 2006 thread, the thread was moved from its place in the list that I scanned in order to compile the index. These embedded 2005 and 2006 posts could only be found by scanning every one of the thousands of post-2006 threads. I didn’t do this. I did, however, do a spot check on these later threads, and I estimate that there are probably about a dozen eggcorns that could have been added, were I willing to spend many hours scanning these later posts, to the 450 in the index below.

The index that follows in the next two posts is organized alphabetically. Each eggcorn has two entries, one for its eggcorn word, the other for its acorn word. Each entry is followed by a description of the eggcorn in context and the name of the eggcorn discoverer, both contained in (what I hope is) a clickable link to the Forum thread. I’m sure there are errors in this index—corrections are always welcome.

This index, by the way, is not like the end-of-year indexes prepared for 2008 and subsequent years. In those indexes, the goal was to provide a complete list of eggcorn candidates from the year, a list that would allow Forum members to review the year’s work and choose the best eggcorns. This index is more selective. I have omitted many proposed eggcorns, judging them to be either not eggcorns or not frequent enough on the web to make any meaningful call about eggcornhood. No doubt eggcorn hardliners (you know who you are) would trim the list even further.

If anyone has time to look over the list and make a selection of favorites, knock yourself out. I have added a post at the end with some of my treasured finds.

I also found a few of the discussions from 2005 and 2006 to be fascinating. You might want to look over the list of mondegreens, the thread about the John Canada/Canada Goose urban legend, and Stephen Durnford’s take on eggcorn evolution. One thread I found quite funny was the sudden appearance on the forum of one of the thousands of perps that we constantly quote. He was surprisingly kind.

Re: The Great Eggcorn Hunt II; index to 2005-2006 Forum posts

For another best-of-2005/6-list, see this thread from June of 2007. It has Joe’s list of 60 Forum eggcorns that he thinks are top priority for entering into the Eggcorn Database. Some of the eggcorns in his list are from the first half of 2007, of course, and are not in the 2005/6 index posted above.

In the same thread Chris also has a list of 60 eggcorns derived from page visit frequencies. She highlights the ones that are slated for entry into the database. Few of these slated eggcorns made it into the Eggcorn Database, however—this post occurred about the time that transfers from the Forum to the Database reduced to a trickle.

Your awesome, Kem! (Calqued on the model of “My bad.”)
