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.

fearlously =) for fearlessly

An interesting misspelling, likely stemming from English’s MANY varied spellings of vowels in unstressed syllables =)

Re: fearlously =) for fearlessly

Fearlously for fearlessly? “Live in fear” contradicts the intended message, doesn’t it?

Hatching new language, one eggcorn at a time.
