Michael Jackson, animutation and the psycholinguist

February 17, 2011 § Leave a comment

Someone with more time on their hands than I has made a minidoco on a subject close to my heart – buffalaxing … linking it to other similar genres animutation and soramimi [Japanese for misheard lyricsm I believe.]

I now have a more comprehensive understanding of the development of these genres and that it did not begin with the linguistic imperialism of English!

I like how this mini doco starts with mondegreens, the fun version of that important element in psycholinguistics, the mondegreen, known more formally, of course, as slips of the ear.
My personal one … I thought that Michael was singing People at the post office … when he was really saying Keep on with the force, don’t stop … actually still not convinced I’m wrong
