Nobody recognizes this as a word! Where did you find it?

Try this: Ergodic
LOL I got a few letters mixed up...the word s/b 'neologize'. Let me try your word then I;ll put mine back, excuse me:unsure: lol.

Ergodic
1 : of or relating to a process in which every sequence or sizable sample is equally representative of the whole (as in regard to a statistical parameter) 2 : involving or relating to the probability that any state will recur especially : having zero probability that any state will never recur.

'Neologize'
The closest Merriam-Webster could come was:

Neologism
noun
noun: neologism; plural noun: neologisms

  1. a newly coined word or expression.

    portmanteau word
    • the coining or use of new words.
  2. Could it be the verb form of that word? Pandect - Goodnight.

I believe he was answering you 'Neologize' entry.

I did too but you didn't see it. Then I asked a question: Could it be the verb form of that word?

Neologism

Wait, can you give what benevolence means. Which dictionary are you using, cos it usually doesnt give just one word for another word thats even longer or more obscure than the word its means to describe?!

I use collins and/or Oxford and the definitions are usually pretty good and understandable. I suppose miriam-webster is an American dictionary?

PHilanthropy
Today, philanthropy means generosity in all its forms and is often defined as giving gifts of “time, talent and treasure” to help make life better for other people. You can practice philanthropy by making a monetary gift, such as a donation to a cause you believe in.

Still waiting on Pandect

The Latin word pandectae is the plural of "pandectes," which means "encyclopedic work" or "book that contains everything

Ok sorry I was a bit confused there. We are not doing synonyms we are doing dictionary definitions. So you cant just give a similar word as a meaning for another word.

benevolent adj
1. Well meaning and kindly.
2. (Of an organization) charitable rather than profit-making.

Derivatives - benevolence

Sorry my dictionary does not have Intestary, it does have intestacy though (are you spelling it correctly?)

Intestacy derives from intestate adj. not having made a will before you die.

Ok new word

Anhedonia :cool:
Anhedonia is a diverse array of deficits in hedonic function, including reduced motivation or ability to experience pleasure.[1] While earlier definitions of anhedonia emphasized the inability to experience pleasure, anhedonia is used by researchers to refer to reduced motivation, reduced anticipatory pleasure (wanting), reduced consummatory pleasure (liking), and deficits in reinforcement learning.

My guess: ecchy - similar to the word etchy, as in etch-a-sketch, so some form of child's drawing; and mosis, the plural of Moses. So an ecchymosis is a child's sketch of myself and a number of similarly named colleagues.

Actual word:
Medicine
noun: ecchymosis; plural noun: ecchymoses
  1. a discoloration of the skin resulting from bleeding underneath, typically caused by bruising.

Very good Moses_Young, but you need to start giving us a new word.
