Malapropisms are a wonderful edition to the English language. I believe we should start a fan club intermediately.
Mrs Malaprop is one of my all-time favorite characters and I mean that most severely! This character born in a theater play dating back to 1775 has left her mark on the English language with historical results. Her use of the English langauge is unparalysed and there is no doubt she has become an national installation. It is difficult to find a more likeable character in all the annuals of literature. Yes, Mrs Malaprop is alive and well and continues to exert her inference on society.
There should be a fan club to immaterialize this wonderful woman who has given us so much grammatical pleasure. There may even be case for making malapropisms convulsory. Don’t you think the world would be a brighter place if we all spoke in the same fashion is the interminable Mrs Malaprop? We could have a Malaprop community with honorable membership. As far as I’m construed, a Malaprop fan club would be a roving success.
I’m not sure that everyone will support me in this but hope springs nocturnal. I guess the best place to start if we want to rasie the profile of Mrs Malaprop is with our own relatives. Remember: Chastity begins at home! We might have to ease our family into the world of malapropisms rather gently at first but as they say, direction is the better part of valor. You may of course have to be prepared for some opposition in your attempts to introduce Mrs Malaprop to your family members keeping in mind that familiarity breeds content. It might just be case of least said soonest tended.
The key is to avoid forcing others to accept Malapropisms as part of their everyday language remembering that the road to hell is paved with good inventions. We have to remind ourselves of how much we help people by encouraging the use of Malapropisms. Ultimately, the end villifies the means. We should never feel apopleptic about introducing the wonderful world of Mrs Malaprop to our friends and family.
Some people might accuse me of butchering the English language by endorsing Malapropisms. To that charge I would answer, in much the same way as Mrs Malaprop would: I RESEMBLE THAT REMARK!!
