written word mistaken substitute example
immorality immortality Misread in church: "Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body.

Libertarian Lieberman "[M]ore than 10,000 Florida voters negated their ballots by voting for both Gore and Libertarian candidate Harry Browne. Presumably, they mistook Libertarian (the party) for Lieberman (Sen. Joe Lieberman, Gore's running mate)."[2]
