Re: Letterate eggcorns

In algebra, people frequently use a t-chart (because it is shaped like a cross) for listing x- and y-coordinates in order to graph an equation. Students frequently think it is a “tea chart”.

Re: Letterate eggcorns

Wow! “B-rating” is a great eggcorn, David. I’m surprised I’ve never noticed it before.
