Mondegreens

Posted by John coxon on February 09, 2003

looking at the origin of the word mondegreen I can't find out who 'Sylvia Wright' was who was supposed to have been the person who misheard the lyric of a Scottish folksong and from whom the expression was coined, Can anyone help as my internet browsing only reveals a humanitarian nurse of the same name.
