Hi Neil, i think it's called malapropismDefinition:The usually unintentionally humorous misuse of a word, especially by confusion with one of similar sound; also, an example of such misuse.
Here is a little one for ya's Spoonering along:I cdnuolt blveiee taht I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd waht I was rdanieg. The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid Aoccdrnig to rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit a porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe. Amzanig huh?

That having been said, it may not be the issue in this case, because it is not so much a matter of mistaken pronunciation but rather one of transposed pronunciation, which (when applied to typing transposition errors), I have always put down to timing errors (i.e. your brain has decided it needs to implement two actions, but the order in which the commands for those actions is mistimed so that the actions are executed out of sequence).
