I've tried to hunt down the AUE web page for misles to see if this is already recorded, with no luck. Does it still exist? Did it ever exist, or was it all a dream?
Anyway, I recall that someone - I believe Donna - collects them, and I came across one today that I don't remember seeing before ... although the chances that I'm the first to note it are close to zero.

It's "coax", which I read today several times as "co-ax", short for "co-axial", until I got the real meaning and the sentence made sense.

Or as what the frogs say in The Frogs .

I saw 'biopic' yesterday in Newsweek , and read it at first as /bAj'apIk/ some adjective to do with vision (like 'myopic'). That fits, in fact, because it's actually a film.

I believe that Donna has a private list that doesn't appear on any web page. Just recently I was looking for her lists of misles and mishy-phens, but all I could find were some aue articles.

I see that word so rarely that I'd never bothered to look up its meaning. Like you, I thought it rhymed with 'myopic'. Now you've prompted me to look it up, but it's probably too late to re-train my pronunciation.
Anyway, thanks for pointing out that it's like a minisery.

Hmm, is this a request? I don't think it would be hard to move those lists from being articles in the AUE archives to being pages at the website.
Just not right this moment I'm trying to finish up all sorts of projects before a week's travel. (Then when I come back there'll be 7,000 posts to read...)
