Notes: I don’t think I’ve heard this word
The word anagnorisis is “an ‘eureka’ moment; a moment of sudden discovery or revelation”
Our word came into English in the late 1700s
Background / Comments
Our word came from Latin, but as you might expect, given the “eureka” in the definition above, it came into Latin from Greek anagnōrí (to know again) from ana- (again) and gnōr (knowing).
