Thanks to a discussion with liz_marcs
, I would like to coin the following term:
- Pronunciation: 'ma-l&-pr&-'pen(t)-s&-tE
Etymology: Mrs. Malaprop
: an often intense natural inclination or preference for vocabulary misuse
In recent years, journalists have developed a malapropensity for the word, "literally."
See also: an-ti-ci-point-ment
Used often in my office....Insurance and Lawyer types. They have the coolest lexicons....
Check out subrogation.

I nominate that we change "New Year's Eve" to "Anticipointment."
