@Mr.Disappointment I've never heard of it alone. How odd.

@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).
