    Not that I can discern, Bieasy. Have you some context that might help?

    What I would call "highlighting".

    May be the context is science fiction or fantasy. In Philip Pulman's Northern Lights, for example, 'electric light' is - in the parallel universe inhabited by Lisa ; 'ambaric light'. And Pulman doesn't explain this. It's just a guess I make based on the link between electricity and amber*.

    Annolighting might be based on some other imagined technology (involving years - how about [my medication isn't due yet ] basing electricity generation on the 'movement' of a time-machine).

    But as RK implied, we need context to save us from this sort of whimsical speculation.

    Maybe in yet another parallel universe there was a girl called Lisa; but the one in Northern Lights is called Lyra.

    I think Anglika has found something. One of my classmates had to explain the meaning of 'annolighting' which doesn't appear in any dictionary. I didn't do that quiz, so I can't give you more information. Thanks, anyway.
