    Default Forgetting words

    Do you know what - I can't remember - ha ha!

    Actually lethologica is the temporary inability to remember a word.

    I hope you don't suffer from it!

    Found it here

    I frequently have lethologica, but I probably won't remember that word, so you'll have to remind me of it.

    :wink:

    Are you talking about lapse, slip (of the memory/mind) ? it's when you cannot remember a word for something you call that a lapse, right?

    I like Crisa's explanation!

    In my case, I call a memory lapse a 'senior moment' or 'brain freeze'!
