This here is a thread compilation of words you have or had somehow misread or mispronounced in some way, only to realize you were wrong.


I'll throw in my experience:

Absintheuse ---> To this day, I still read it as "Abstinence".

Feducci ---> Feduchini.

Parabola ---> Pearbolas

Optimatum ---> Optinum

"A visit from Slowcake's Amanuensis" -> "A visit from Slowcake's Aneurysm"

Then I realized that's just the effect he has on me.

I fail to see why this thread is here in the Salons rather than the off topic section. (Especially when half the examples are forum usernames.)

Optimatum, a ruthless and merciful gentleman. No plant battles, Affluent Photographer requests, or healing offers; all other social actions welcome.

For the holiday season, send me Christmas Cards for sips of Cider! Fogscapes with Tentacles strongly preferred. (Only one per character, sorry!)

PM me for information enigmatic or Fated. Though the forum please, not FL itself.

For a long time, I thought Sinning Jenny was actually Singing Jenny.
I was so innocent back then.

I'm sure you've all heard of the Cherry Man, fearsome crime lord, pub owner and apparently purveyor of cherries. They must sell quite well down here.

I just read this very thread's topic as The Mairead Thread...

also, Cider and Cinder. Don't know how often I've mixed those up in the beginning.

"Waiter, another ray-drenched cider, please!"

I thought Spirifers were called Sprifters until shortly after the Hell conversion.

Oh! Oh! This reminds me, for a very long time I thought it was "nevercold brass silvers" and not "slivers". Confuse me to no end, wondered if it was some alloy of brass and silver

I thought it was Nevercold Brass Silver too at first. And my friend keeps calling Rostygold "Rustygold."

Gonna ressurrect this for a moment to say:

For as long as I can remember, I've said and spelt it "Corpescage" island, like Cor-pes-cuhge. Only looking it up on the Wiki just recently did I discover it was "Corpsecage" island, corpse-cage.

I also always used to read the Topsy King's word for the Flit as "Walksies" and not "Walkskies".
