Finding a Word

Posted: October 23, 2011 in Ramblings

You all know what innuendo means. And you all know what double-entendre means. Does anybody know what the proper antonym is for these words? What I’m looking for is a word meaning “a perfectly normal conversational phrase, that someone with a dirty mind will take the wrong way.” The two above mean “a dirty phrase that can be taken as a perfectly normal conversational phrase, even by someone with a dirty mind.”

So, help!

    A double – entendre does not have to be intentional. What you are describing is a lewd interpretation of a normal phrase. I don’t know af a single word to describe this.
