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.

Comments on Database articles

The Database entries no longer say that comments are closed, but I couldn’t get a comment to publish just now, so I thought maybe it might be a good idea to start a thread for comments on particular Database articles.

The newest article—on perennial>>preannual—doesn’t mention that Ken Lakritz posted a very closely related reshaping 2005/10/09 (perennial>>perannual). It’s here (you have to scroll down to comment 704): … t-page-71/

Ken’s reshaping is less drastic and therefore returns many more Google hits. It may also be a bit more obviously eggcornish.
