I love writing! Whether it's nonfiction, fiction, (well, okay, mostly fiction), screenplays, plays, music, poetry, I will write it. Please review my writing!

Mondegreen

PROMPT: Word

My favorite word is mondegreen. It means a misunderstood word, misunderstood because of the mishearing of a song. I like it because it's quirky and strange, but also beautiful. Also, most people have never heard of it.

    I have heard of "mondegreen." It was the Word of the Day once on Dictionary.com, which I visit every day. I like this word too -- it is very useful for me because I have grown up with all sorts of mondegreens.

    Thank you for sharing!
