Notes: I assume lawyers don’t enjoy this descriptive word
The word acecdata means “anecdotal information gleaned from casual information”
Background / Comments
This word is a blend of anecdotal and data. The source of anecdotal is Greek from anekdota (things unpublished), and that word is composed of an- (not) and ekdidonai (to publish). An example of anecdata would be, for instance, to decide that wearing seat-belts is bad, citing a few people you know who survived auto accidents because they were not wearing their seat-belts. A related kind of word is cherry-picking.
This is a more recent word, showing up in 1980.
