40.2 Word Blend and Phrase Blend

If the blending of the two phrases occurs as the blending of one word within them, then that is not considered a phrase blend. For example, if you have a strong tendency to say both “right on” and “far out,” and end up saying “fright out,” that is an example of a word blend, not a phrase blend.
