Word of the Day – paramnesia

tip_of_my_tongueToday’s word is paramnesia .  This word refers to the process of being forgetful when it comes to the correct meaning of something.

This made me think of something that happens to me a lot, and many others with Ataxia.  I will suddenly forget what I was about to say or have a word “right on the tip of my tongue” but not be able to spit it out.
