  • anachrospasm /ənakroʊ'spaz(ə)m/ n. An intensely jarring or unsettling episode of déjà-vu.

    I made this word up for fun in 2009. I thought it would make a good title for a Thrash Metal album. The anachro- and -spasm parts are mixing Greek and Latin, which supposedly poor form.

  • I like that.

    I thought that there must be a Latin combining form that describes spasm or seizure, but all I found were more Greek forms: -lepsy and -plexy/-plegia. Darn
