Site running get_the_title through a thesaurus filter for some reason (2 posts)

    Random blog posts in our system are running the title field through what looks like a thesaurus filter and it's driving me crazy. You can see the effect here:

    The article:
    "Bucknell sophomore heads for Sultanate of Oman for soak in Arabic"

    Should read:
    "Bucknell sophomore heads for Sultanate of Oman for immersion in Arabic"

    The title field reads as the latter; something is happening where WordPress parses out synonyms of words.

    I have created a custom field to give authors the opportunity to truncate/change the official title with something else; if we paste the true title into that field, all is well.

    Here is the code being used to differentiate whether or not one uses the custom field:

    $title_fight	  = get_post_meta($post->ID, 'story_title', true) ;		// Are we going with a hand-crafted title or not?
    	if ( $title_fight == '' ) {
    		 $title_fight = get_the_title($post->ID);
    	}

    Any help would be most appreciated.

    As a follow-up, I have looked at this page with our current theme and with Twenty Twelve, and the problem appears there, too.
