I’ve just been watching Dave Gorman’s programme from last week and he had a good bit on malapropisms. I particularly liked ‘flaming yawn’ - as in ‘I’m going to cook some flaming yawn for dinner’

About This Thread

Maintained by Markymarkmark
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.
