Re: Carnosaur and conosaur for connoisseur

Just people misspelling a foreign word, which they probably can’t pronounce, either. Makes a great visual, though, as you demonstrated. It reminds me of seeing “prefix” for “prix fixe” because the x of “prix” isn’t pronounced. Unfortunately, it was on a restaurant’s website. I see that it is in the website already.
