  • Schize is a rare word, more often used as a noun than a verb. Here's an example that uses both:

    "If psychoanalytical discourse reposes on 'woman' as absence, on the imposibility of elaborating what is beyond the phallus, on the impossibility of feminine rapport and on the othering of 'woman' to the point of her foreclosure, in an analogy to a 'gaze' that is the forever schized so that a certain unconscious and a split subject can emerge, then art may be a site from which some light may be shed on another 'woman', for in the act of painting the schize between the gaze and the eyes melts and is woven into swerved distance."
    --Brian Massumi, 2002, A Shock to Thought: Expression after Deleuze and Guattari, p. 237
