Word of the Day for Monday, October 8, 2012 apophasis \uh-POF-uh-sis\, noun: Denial of one's intention to speak of a subject that is at the same time named or insinuated, as “I shall not mention Caesar's avarice, nor his cunning, nor his morality.” But I think that anything that is deep isn't love, it's deliberate calculation or schizophrenia. I myself wouldn't even attempt to say what love is - probably both love and God can only be defined by apophasis, through those things that they are not. -- Viktor Pelevin, The Sacred Book of the Werewolf Apophasis stems from the Greek word apópha meaning "to say no, deny." The suffix -sis appears in Greek loanwords, where it forms an abstract noun from a verb, as in thesis. Origin: 1650–60; < Late Latin < Greek: a denial, equivalent to apópha ( nai ) to say no, deny ( apo- apo- + phánai to say) + -sis -sis
