Examples have been plucked gleefully from three categories of blunders: malapropisms—named after Mrs. Malaprop in Sheridan's play The Rivals where the wrong word pops out to bizarre results; eggcorns—where a new word is created

Combining musical insight with the most recent research, William Kinderman's Beethoven is both a richly drawn portrait of the man and a guide to his music. Kinderman traces the composer's intellectual and musical development from the early works written in Bonn to the Ninth Symphony and the late quartets, looking at compositions from different and original perspectives that show Beethoven's art as a union of sensuous and rational, of expression and structure. In analyses of individual pieces,
