@MarkBeadles not using an obscure word for fear of not being understood, is how words become obscure in the first place.

I guess it is a sort of Anamnesis in that sense.

Does that cover memories surfacing with specific provocation? the examples in the link and other dictionaries seem a little sparse/unclear.

Fair enough, I must be wrong then.

comment A word for the feeling of falling
I'd describe the sudden jerk as coming from my midsection making it go numb, and feel as though it's trying to escape. That's definitely what I feel. I'm not talking about the movement of the body due to acceleration, but the effect I feel on my stomach.

comment A word for the feeling of falling
Falling (and feeling that acceleration) and free-fall (when there is no net acceleration) are two different things. Free-fall is entirely the wrong word for the sudden jerk when you start to fall (which I think is what the OP is after).

The triggered memory, but specifically the memory is a continuation of a phrase you heard.

Care to explain? I only find An admirer or imitator of Marcel Proust or Of, relating to, or characteristic of Proust, his writings, or his style.

The word or phrase triggers it, as in it's not a conscious effort to bring back that memory. It happens, I'm sure with others triggers (smells, sights etc) but mostly for me with words.
