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.

This is not an eggcorn but an issue having to do with pronunciation. Since when does mischievous have four syllables? For me it has always had three” mis’-chiv-us. I keep hearing people pronounce it: mis-cheev’-ee-us.
