You keep using that word.. I do not think it means what you think it means. ~ Inigo, Princess Bride Just a fun little post today on malapropisms. Do you ever find yourself reading something, particularly something written by your Average Joe–a blog post, a Facebook comment, and so on– when you find yourself suddenly stopped in your tracks by the obvious misuse of a word or phrase? Yeah. That. Malapropisms: the ludicrous misuse of a word, especially by confusion with one of a similar sound. Sometimes people do that on purpose, for reaction. (I live with one of them.)
