Re: All Things Words

commensurate ...ever since someone ran and 'told on me' for using this word at work (!)... When I lived in the DC 'burbs, an aide to DC's mayor got fired for using 'niggardly' - a perfectly good word - in a budget meeting.

Re: All Things Words

Well, mondegreen is the word I ought to be using for Nabokovian homonyms. Who came first Nabokov or Sylvia Wright? But Nabokov put them in his books on purpose, mondegreen is a mistake in hearing it. hmmmmm?

Re: All Things Words

I like pairs of Nabokovian homonyms. I don't know if that term is used by anyone but me. Two (or more) words that don't have to be pronounced exactly the same, but very similar.
