A new word or not?
Is "Phasement" a real word?

If not why not?

I think it should be.

In fact I want to use it in my dissertation.

Here's the sentence that I use it in...

"These four varying degrees of action are "Cold Turkey", a Medium Term phasement, Long Term drawn out process, or the "Ostrich Syndrome"."

What do you think? I'd really appreciate people's opinions!

I like your word :D! Therefore I shall use it next chance I get!

There's always a need for new words and making them up makes it more interesting! At least then you know the exact word for what you mean.

That sounds...just weird.

*shrugs* Oh well! It sounds like a real word to me now, but that might be because I've been saying it all day to people and myself!

I must admit though that the sentence leaves a lot to be desired. Might have to re-write it!

Ta! xx
