What is mondegreen?

By Venkatram Harish Belvadi In Misc.

Mondegreen – /m?n’d?-gr?n’/ n. A series of words that result from the mishearing or misinterpretation of a statement.

I have shifted through many blogs in the past, gaining an equally huge number of readers each time. This made me realize that what I post here is far more important in reaching a large audience than any advertising gimmick. Mondegreen is my personal blog and will stay so for a long time to come.

The name is indeed a rather humorous one, but there is no need to take it at face value! Mondegreen is something I leave to you to ponder over: who are we referring to here? You, perhaps? Or me? Either way, every one of us has done this at some or the other time. Some of us even have a way with it! But the reason I decided to call this blog of mine with this gruesomely murderous name, perhaps even risking losing a few readers, is because I hope—and expect that you hope too!—that the mondegreen around here stays put within the name and does not crawl out into my posts!

Very well then. Think about it and give me a piece of your mind —I can hardly expect you to commend me!

    It's interesting to see this point of view. I can't say fore sure if I agree or not, but it is something I will think about now.
