A spoonerism is an error in speech or deliberate play on words in which corresponding consonants, vowels, or morphemes are switched (see metathesis). It is named after the Reverend William Archibald Spooner (1844–1930), Warden of New College, Oxford, who was notoriously prone to this tendency.[1][2] It is also known as a marrowsky, after a Polish count who suffered from the same impediment.[3] While spoonerisms are commonly heard as slips of the tongue resulting from unintentionally getting one's words in a tangle, they can also be used intentionally as a play on words. In some cultures, spoonerisms are used as a rhyme form used in poetry, such as German Schüttelreime. Spoonerisms are commonly used intentionally in humor, especially drunk humor.

I often switch the beginning of words around ie.   led ramp instead of red lamp it only ever seems to be the first letter

invented by the Rev Spooner who was prone to transposing the fron ends of words so " The Dear Queen" became "the queer dean"

Only for spoonerisms.  He did doozies.  And growing up in England everyone made them "time to time" (that was an invisible spoonerism)
