Adaptation B: Chosen idea, initial research

With the feedback on my initial research, my project got a better base to work with. After looking up into forums where parents post song lyrics their children misheard or in general it turned out that this has a name -mondegreen (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mondegreen).

Where the name 'mondegreen' comes from: http://www.homecomingmagazine.com/article/what-was-that-again-hilarious-misheard-christmas-lyrics/

Upon further research malapropism (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malapropism) and spoonerism (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spoonerism) came up.

Examples for malapropism:

Examples for spoonerism:

There are also anagrams, palindromes and pangrams. Examples and explanation for all of these things I found in this website http://www.fun-with-words.com/index.html.


A weird video that kind of includes the things I mentioned so far

    Consider analogue methodology - i.e. ink, paper, water colour = messier! :)
