    In English law, this would be called delictum sui generis (as the Wikipedia article shows).

  • Have you looked in a thesaurus?

  • I did. It seems to be a coined term meaning just this one law. This is in essence a request for translation (off topic).

  • In the Greek, what are the parts of the word?

  • Official translations between the greek word are provided in many places, and are as Andrew says 'delictum sui generis' etc. From the Wikipedia source [1] it appears the 'idionymon' is used in English as a translation as well. I am not looking for a translation rather I am looking for synonyms which are not phrases. Jul 4, 2013 at 18:40

Since it is used to recognize a law, there is no synonym for it.
