  • Urban Dictionary and my uncle use this word to describe someone with dementia

    Relatedly, he's described someone who does not appear to have dementia as non-dementianal. I thought it was a humorous construction, like calling Target Targét, but it appears that my uncle is serious.

    Other -ntia words in English rodentia & orthodontia. In those cases, the -ia is removed, and they use that final t to become rodent and orthodontal. Dementia would turn into demented, which carries a lot of negative connotations. Maybe dementianal is a good solution?
