Being fearious suggests fearsome anger.
The British decided that the were running low on money, so they placed a tax on imported goods that were being sent to the colonies which made the colonists fearious. To protect the British merchants Britain sent troops to the colonies, which infeariated them even more.
Thus says the Lord in his feary against the unrepentant leaders and their followers who follow divination (false preachers)
Somehow missed this one when it was posted a few months ago. “Feary/infeariate” for “fury/infuriate” seems like a solid eggcorn. No yolk (joke).
Hatching new language, one eggcorn at a time.
