  • This neologism could be murated from cortication, which means "having a cortex." Such a definition would fit the context of the text in which the word appears in Infinite Jest.

    On the other hand, this word also bears striking similarity to corticalization, which, while the context does not bear out its definition, could still be a significant connection, given DFW's penchant for making such connections.
