I heard a colleague this morning talk about getting a military letter of accommodation. At first I thought it might be more of a verbal tic than an actual eggcorn, but I ran a Twitter search and found many examples in writing. Here’s one:
“To: Your little friends and circle of cult people, My Military Career is very real, My Combat Training, Martial Arts; etc. rank, ribbons, medals, letter of accommodation, certifications, 4 honorable discharges. all the 12 years of Service are real.”
It didn’t take long to find misspelled examples:
“The Air We Breathe: We cleaned the air at the Pentagon after the 9/11. We were awarded Letter of Accomodation from the Dept of Defense.”
“My hubby just got a letter of accomadation for the Admiral in San Diego… GO BABY!!!!”
I decided not to go any farther down that rabbit hole.
