To the editor:
I thoroughly enjoyed Adrienne Kavelle’s recent column, “Words. I loved all of the “malaprops” you mention.
It reminded me of a friend who recently told me her friend had an “audio” immune disease. I just had to correct her that the word was “auto” and not “audio.” I remember a comedian back in the 50s who had so many stories to tell about “malaprops” and words heard incorrectly. He was hearing impaired and had the greatest sense of humor; his name was “Norm Crosby.”
I myself found out later in life that the saying that I always thought was “The Bronx chair” was indeed “The Bronx cheer.” Looking forward to “hearing” more “malaprops”— always good for a laugh!!
And thank you, Adrienne.
