Malapropism, Mondegreen, & Spoonerisms, Oh My!

  • Malapropism: the use of an incorrect word in place of a word with a similar sound, resulting in a nonsensical, often humorous utterance.
  • Mondegreen: the mishearing or misinterpretation of a phrase as a result of near-homophony, in a way that gives it a new meaning.
  • Spoonerism: an error in speech or deliberate play on words in which corresponding consonants, vowels, or morphemes are switched (see metathesis), between two words in a phrase.
