The featured word in this post comes from a suggestion made by a fellow blogger known as Little Rabbit and she writes a blog called The Littlest Rabbit which you can visit at

I had never heard of the word ACOUASM until Little Rabbit mentioned it. It kind of a neat word. It can be like a dream or a it could even be a figment of your imagination. Just what is an acouasm?

Acouasm: a nonverbal auditory hallucination, as a ringing or hissing.

Acouasm originates from the Greek word ákou which means "something heard". And  ákou is a stem of the word akoúein which means to hear.
