Anomia (noun)
[uh-noh-mee-uh]

This is the loss of the ability to name objects or recall names. So you might say “As he got older he began experiencing anomia.” We occasionally experience it in day-to-day situations too – when a word or name is “on the tip of our tongue” but we can’t remember it.

Listen to Valerie and Allison chat more about this and more on the world of writing, blogging and publishing.
