"sinewous" for sinuous

Davon with almost unnatural sinewous movements acts like a human folcrum as the men bandy together, some keeping one busy, while the others demonstrate a herculean effort and push them over. They scramble to tie down the statues, whilst parrying off their razor sharp blows.

Rik clung to him for a few strides longer and then decided to take matters into her own paws. Writhing her sinewous body around on his head, she bit deeply into the ear by which her tail gripped him.

He raced down the stairs, his lithe and sinewous body making easy work of all of the twisting and winding, cold, stone steps.

A blend of sinewy and sinuous.

Incidentally, I’ve kept my enonym burred in an effort to avoid busting one thousand.

An eggcorn très comestible.

Hatching new language, one eggcorn at a time.
