Pronunciation: FIB-ruh-LAYJ-shunz

Sentence: She counted the candles, realised that they had somehow discovered her real age, and immediately felt strange and more than a little unwell. She saw looks of horror descend over her friends' faces and noticed others trying to hide their laughter as the involuntary muscle twitching affected her. She was aging twenty years before their very eyes! Such is the eerie phenomenon of fibrillagetion.

Etymology: Blend of fib, age, rage, and fibrillations (Fine, rapid twitching of individual muscle fibers with little or no movement of the muscle as a whole.)
