Cool, it looks like I'm going to be quoted in the print edition of the "A Word A Day" list, to be published by Wiley & Sons.

Now before you trot off with the impression that I have invented a particularly bright word, here's what I'm being quoted for. Something I committed about 21 years ago:

Grand-father: "Oooh, look a the nice latest Toyota."
Me: "That's not a toy auto, it's a big auto."

I think it's for the a chapter/collection on various ways of misunderstanding something, mondegreens for instance.

Anyway, at least I'll have left a little thing for posterity ;-)
