Hmmmm... it's just on the tip of my tongue... but I just can't seem to remember it...

Lethologica: The inability to remember a word or put your finger on the right word

Wikipedia describes the word as a psychological disorder that inhibits an individual's ability to articulate his or her thoughts by temporarily forgetting key words, phrases or names in conversation. 

The causes of lethologica include stress, physical fitness,  social interaction and memory capacity. It can be categorized as a lifestyle disease which is affected by individual personality traits.  

Lethologica was suggested by redmicasupra you can see his blog @ http://w17l.blogspot.com/



  1. I can't wait to use this word.
    What really annoys me is when I'm trying to think of a word, and my brain keeps offering me the same (wrong) option. As though eventually, I'll get fed up and just use what it came up with instead of continually pestering it to retrieve the correct one.

  2. This one will come in handy... except, I'll probably not be able to remember it.

  3. Your blog is like a cool dictionary. I thought forgetting something was called brain freeze.
    Learn something from your blog how cool
