No More Eggcorns

M-W defines eggcorn as: "a word or phrase that sounds like and is mistakenly used in a seemingly logical or plausible way for another word or phrase."

Say "a scapegoat" and "escape goat" out loud.
Now you understand how people can get mixed up.

A great list of eggcorns you SHOULD NOT USE can be found at:

Here are a few of our favorites:

civilware instead of silverware

daring-do instead of derring-do

free examples instead of free samples

in other worlds instead of in other words

lapkin instead of napkin

mute point instead of moot point

pass mustard instead of pass muster

pre-Madonna instead of prima donna

takes two to tangle instead of takes two to tango

world wind romance instead of whirlwind romance

Mr. Darcy - Bridget Jone's Diary

The Best

Over the years many of our favorite love stories first captured in books have been made into movies. In some cases, many movies from the same book, most famously Pride and Prejudice. Arguments over which version is the best have swirled for years, with many newer devotees having their say after the 2005 version was released.

We thought to provide a list (not exhaustive by any stretch of the imagination) of some of the book to movie love stories. They are listed in no particular order. Send us an email and tell us your top ten.

Happy Valentine’s Day.
