Pronunciation: In-im-ist-a-tion. I'm not very experienced with pronunciation guides, but I hope that helps...

Sentence: She felt utter despair at the inimistation that Destiny has dealt her today.. When would this day end?

Etymology: An amalgamation of the Latin word for unfair and the Greek word for fate, in the a vague sort of way. It is also related to inimical, with station referring to a place in life. The description continues in the Comments section of this Verboticism.


I hope this qualifies... The spelling's a little odd, though... - Hyperion, 2007-09-09: 08:34:00

I've changed the spelling of the word, and refined its meaning. Continuing on the description... Therefore, it means both an unfair fate and a part of life that's bad for you, as well as a feeling of inimicality in relation to the world and frustration with it. Clever, huh? - Hyperion, 2007-09-09: 08:53:00
