Excommunicapitation

Created by: arrrteest

Pronunciation: ex-com-yoon-ih-cap-ih-tay-shun

Sentence: Marian was generally a laid back person that showed little worry or frustration with life's daily problems. However all bets were off if she was deprived of her cell phone's signal strength. She regularly calmed any anxiety by calling or texting her friends and family and was perfectly content -- as long as there was enough signal strength for the phone. This calmness was not the case when she had to enter a new building where she had not cased out before and didn't know where any dead spots were. She was a nervous wreck if she had to leave her suburban sprawl neighborhood for the big city -- what if there was a tunnel she had to go in without service, what if the tall buildings blocked a signal? Camping? Forget it. Too remote. She suffered from intense fear of excommunicaptiation.

Etymology: ex, no longer + communi, communication + cap, head + ation, state of being
