One of my favorite was an author/surgeon who insisted throughout an entire manuscript that he was "litigating arteries". Please, can you cite said article? molly dickmeye[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE] >>> Stephanie Hysmith 10/6/95, 01:26am >>> Ohio University Electronic Communication Date: 06-Oct-1995 02:07am EST To: Remote Addressee ( _mx%"ads-l[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]" ) From: Stephanie Hysmith Dept: English HYSMITH Tel No: 614-593-2743 Subject: Mondegreens I just discovered Pullet Surprise in Fromkin and Rodman and so was pleased to recognize the term in the recent discussion and delighted to learn about the demise of Lady Mondegreen. It reminded me of a medical journal article that listed some of the self-diagnosed illnesses of emergency room patients. Very-close veins roaches of the liver sick-as-hell anemia are all I can recall. I have a new one from my neighbor, though. He was telling me about someone suffering from oldtimer's disease. Makes sense to me! Stephanie Hysmith Ohio University Received: 06-Oct-1995 02:26am
