DDD #26: Only Dolly Parton Can Prevent CryptomnesiaOn this episode:
Dolly Parton is an expert on accidental plagiarism — and on being a human. Listener/new friend Allison brings up the placement of “only” and the insulting inclusion of “actually” in otherwise pleasant sentences. We find out what the word “eggcorn” means, and then we ridicule people who use them.
