Easedrop or Eavesdrop
Easedrop or Eavesdrop :
The area under the eaves right next to the front of a building used to be called the “eavesdrop," and somebody listening in secretively from such a position came to be called an “eavesdropper."
Unfortunately, so few people distinctly pronounce the V in “eavesdrop" that many are misled into misspelling it “easedrop."
