noun. Damn it, Jim, I’m a lexicographer, not a quantumographer!

Real citation: “Well… JACS appears to have a higher-than-average amount of nanoblahblah dealing with quantumblahblah that I really couldn’t follow with my feeble synthetic organic chemistry brain. There are a few things in there, however.”

Made-up citation: “Through hard work and quantumblahblah, I think we can regrow your torso, the only part of your body that was demolished in the accident.”
