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.

Stationery -> Stationary

I’ve just received an internal company email from one of our secretaries that paradoxically states:

“The stationary cupboard has been moved. It can now be found in the corridor outside the meeting room.”

Is this an eggcorn, or just an idiot who doesn’t know the difference between stationery and stationary?
