On a local FB page someone posted

“I know it is a massive slingshot but has anyone found a heavy silver earring in town centre?”

I don't like the increasing prevalence of «honing in» on something. There's a difference between honing and homing, as any fule sharp-witted pijon kno.

About This Thread

Maintained by We 3Ms of Orient Are
The word "malapropism" (and its earlier variant "malaprop") comes from a character named "Mrs. Malaprop" in Richard Brinsley Sheridan's 1775 play The Rivals. Mrs. Malaprop frequently misspeaks (to comic effect) by using words which don't have the meaning that she intends but which sound similar to words that do.
