How many times have you meant to say something, a sentence for example and youve messed it up. Not in the slip of the tongue way, but in the messing up the initial sounds of the words, so the sentence comes out wrong? For example, instead of saying, go take a shower, it comes out as go shake a tower! If youre as awkward as I am, it happens way more times than you would like it too!
While these are commonly known as slip of the tongue. This phenomenon actually has a name spoonerism. Spoonerism, in short, is when a speaker alters the initial sounds or letters of words by accident. The best part is that it is actually named after Reverend William Archibald Spooner, who is said to be infamously susceptible to this mistake. He actually became famous for this. How cool is it to be famous for always not saying the right thing about anything or anyone.
So the next time, you end up saying something like the kitchen is in the chicken (The chicken is in the kitchen) or soul of ballad (bowl of salad), take a moment to remember Reverend William and question your life choices since the people around you are obviously laughing.
