Many happy returns from across The Pond.

Words - Hypnagogic and hypnopompic

It’s a long time since I did a word blog posting.  I came across these two the other day -  hypnagogic and hypnopompic

Hypnagogic is an adjective relating to drowsiness, particularly that confused, dream-like, transitional state as you drift off to sleep.  Hypnagogic hallucinations may occur as you go from wakefulness to sleep.


Hypnopompic is an adjective relating to the semi-conscious, state prior to complete wakefulness from sleep.  Hypnopompic hallucinations may occur as you wake up.


(Note Hypnagogic is spelled with an ‘a’ and hypnopompic with an ‘o’.  (In the book I came across them they were both spelled with an ‘o’ which was incorrect.).
