Last month, I learned the word:
"Charcuterie (pronounced "shahr-ku-tuh-ree") is the art of preparing and assembling cured meats and other meat products. But, many people use the term charcuterie to refer to an assortment of meats that are paired with different accompaniments, such as toast, fruit, cheese, and sauces."
I had never heard the word before, but now that I have I notice it everywhere. And everyone else seems to have been using it for years, and I never heard it. What is the word for that? I'm sure it must be some type of psychological thing where previously ignored or unobserved phenomenon now breaks through and allows the subconscious to make a new pathway of recognition. If you know what it is, that will be my next new word. It is probably very obvious and I am completely looking over it again. Oh, the irony.
