When somebody uses incorrect but similar sounding words to express themselves

  • by

What almost always gets a laugh out of us it is when someone uses words that sound wrong, but similar to express themselves. Electrical rather than electoral, bone jaw instead of  bonjour , suppository rather than repository – the comic potential is almost unlimited, because we all have blind spots where we mix two words that sound similar they are, in fact, nothing more than a similar meaning.
