Epiphany vs. affinity

Somewhere on this website, I read a text where a person says he or she has an “epiphany” for a certain dialect of German. (If my memory serves me correctly, that’s what the “epiphany” was for.)

I think the person meant affinity.

Compare the definitions from the Oxford American Dictionary:

You are absolutely right Jamie, many thanks for pointing this out. Stewart has an affinity for Saxon dialects.[YSaerTTEW443543]

TOEIC listening, question-response: Who will be giving the presentation for us?[YSaerTTEW443543]
