Nothing on Google book search that I could see (some possible typos or OCR errors). SemperBlotto (talk) 16:54, 6 April 2012 (UTC)

Speedied. See User_talk:Luciferwildcat#psychomological. Equinox 17:01, 6 April 2012 (UTC)
Strangely enough, I've heard this word; I'm surprised it only gets <2000 raw Google hits, but I think I can cite it from Usenet. I don't think it's "eye dialect" per se, it's just adding a syllable as to mock jargon words or the concept of psychology itself. (I'm guessing it's US-only, too?) - -sche (discuss) 17:30, 6 April 2012 (UTC)
Yeah I am not sure if it's eye dialect, there is an intention to mock or describe the subsequent with less seriousness than without the mo. Everyone on here thinks I am making this word up, but I am not. I am actually pretty sure we can cite it to a transcript of The Simpsons (Homer Simpson) and Family Guy (Peter Griffith) actually saying it.Lucifer (talk) 22:16, 6 April 2012 (UTC)
Anyway, this is cited now. Thanks for the 'humorous' tag, Equinox; I was having a hard time thinking of how to express that information about the register/milieu of the term. - -sche (discuss) 07:49, 8 April 2012 (UTC)
