Another interesting word: malapropism


I was reading an article about the economy, and they were discussing the current ‘speak’ from the top talking heads (the major banks and the fed). The writer brought in the old quote from Yogi Berra… “it ain’t over till it’s over’.

This reference led me to research Mr. Berra on Wikipedia. He is quite a figure, and still with us. They had his famous quotes on there, which are gems. For some reason, though, I thought he was more prolific, but there were only 5 or 6 ‘famous quotes’ listed.

So why malapropism? Well, it is because it was stated that Mr. Berra “has a tendency for malapropism.”

There you go.
