This is a line in an episode of a TV series "Miranda".The context is that Miranda and her friend Stevie are mobilizing themselves to beat a girl who mockingly say they are old.I know there isn't such a word as un-twoable,but I'm still very curious to know what Miranda means with this utterance.Your help will be much appreciated.
I don't know what whole morpheme transpositions are called. One popular in my family is 'The thick plottens'.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
RoverA spoonerism is an error in speech or deliberate play on words in which corresponding consonants, vowels, or morphemes are switched.
Yes, I worded my objection wrongly . My restricting it to phonemes was wrong. Such a distinction is worth making though, I think. The Wikipedia definition doesn't (explicitly) extend to whole words ('two' and 'stop'), although it does by implication as the two words in question are both monophonemic.
