bspbuco commented on the word paramnesia
So far the remarks miss the best thing to know about paramnesia: that it is essentially the same in common American and British use as Deja Vu, except that the latter includes a sense of dread ("Oh Pooh, It's Happening Again!"), while paramnesia might be the same experience of memory but without the dread - a quite relaxed acknowledgement that this may have happened before.
