Proptistic

Created by: wileycount

Pronunciation: /prÉ’p/(tiss)(-tik)

Sentence: Since he was young boy, Jerry couldn't let go of his novel nuggets of stuff, for his fear of words was only warded off by the presence of an obvious token of meaning. His teachers, however, were indisposed to pity the proptistic lad. Or: Of all developmental disorders, proptism has remained an unrecognized and untreated tormentor of the socially disabled.

Etymology: prop (a person or thing giving support, as of a moral or spiritual nature: [related to Middle Dutch proppe vine prop; compare Old High German pfropfo shoot, German Pfropfen stopper])+ suffix -tism. The suffix "-ism" implies a disease or defining attribute of a person or a thing. The additional "t" makes "proptism" cognate to "autism".
