Pronunciation: der-ma-fright

Sentence: When she was a small child, Sue had a dermaffright when a clown slipped on a banana peel in front of her at the circus. Her brother, always looking for an opportunity to torment his little sister, would chase her around the house with banana skins, orange skins or anything else that came from a fruit or vegetable. After several years of therapy she came to the conclusion that it was the clown she was afraid of, not the skin, and now she can enjoy fruit again, although not bananas yet because she developed a fear of monkeys after seeing a Discovery Channel special.
