GUEST,Jon Dudley 'Innocent Hare' What does 'relope' mean? (99* d) RE: 'Innocent Hare' What does 'relope' mean? 26 Mar 03


Oh!, for goodness sake...I can't leave this alone! Conventional (sic) dictionaries might not have picked up on the meaning of 'mondegreen' but yourDictionary.com certainly has, viz....

A series of words that result from the mishearing or misinterpretation of a statement or song lyric. For example, I led the pigeons to the flag for I pledge allegiance to the flag.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
[After (Lady) Mondegreen, a misinterpretation of the line (hae laid) him on the green, from the song "The Bonny Earl of Murray".]

A case of Mudcatters in the lexicography department here methinks.
