What's a mondegreen?


Mandy Green is a mondegreen of mondegreen.

Let me explain.

The word
mondegreen was coined in 1954 but added to Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary only on July 7, 2008. A mondegreen is a mishearing of something said or sung. A famous example is "all of the other reindeer" being heard as "Olive the other reindeer."

See another example in this 19-second family-friendly video:



As you see,
mondegreens are common, but the term is hardly a household word.

Mandy Green Project is out to change that!
