PSYCHOLOGY

Definition Morbid fear of the (full) moon

Comment This rates among the sillier “phobias” one can find on phobia lists. Just because one can juxtapose two classic Greek or Latin roots doesn’t mean one should. I doubt this term has ever been used clinically, and further doubt that psychiatrists would regard it as a proper phobia.
