Link Mania: Eggcorns

The Eggcorn Database is a collection of interesting, sometimes almost poetic, lexical mistakes in English compositions. Examples:

"I got a call on my self-phone early this morning, waking me up."

"But it could give the neocons a new leash on life, a way to invigorate their exhausted ideological engines."

"Why can't we, as a society, treat each other with a bit of respect and give Madonna and her elk the 1st class treatment she deserves!"

No problem! If I ever encounter Madonna's elk, I'll give it plenty of first-class respect.
