I remember reading (apparently not on the internet) a lighthearted definition of the word I want to use. This noun means a kind of quibble that is so trivial that only a metaphysician or similar flibbitigibit would point it out. To all normal people the matter is resolved.
Can anyone help me get this word off the tip of my tongue and into electronic ink?
I think it begins with the letter "p" and has at least three syllables.
