Beware the ????? of March!

Recommended Posts

There's a name for this phenomena - misusing a word - that I can't remember. Does anyone know what it is???






FOUND IT!  The name of the phenomenon that I was inquiring about is malapropism.

"The unintentional misuse of a word by confusion with one of similar sound, esp when creating a ridiculous effect..."
