Notes: I think I know a form of this word
The word marrowsky is a synonym of ‘spoonerism’, which you may know. In case you don’t, it refers to the transposition of the initial sounds of words (usually the initial sounds, but no always). For example, saying “Is the bean dizzy?” instead of “Is the dean busy?”
Our word came into English in the mid-1800s
Background / Comments
I’ve never heard of our word, but I am familiar with ‘spoonerism’. The origin of our word is not known, but it is thought to be the name of a Polish count who did this.
