Just read a synaesthetic dissertation that combined photography, prose narratives, poetry, and Buddhist spirituality. I’m too old to judge whether or not the blend works.
Our local blue BC corvid is the Steller’s jay, a close relative (hybrids can be found in the Eastern Rockies) of the blue jays found on the East Coast. The author of the dissertation referred to it several times as the “stellar jay.” Which it is.
Hatching new language, one eggcorn at a time.
