Word of the day: Pareidolia

Pareidolia

A psychological phenomenon in which the mind responds to a stimulus (an image or a sound) by perceiving a familiar pattern where none exists.

Successful politicians are good at exploiting pareidolia to let voters hear what they want in their  words. If that makes sense to you, you may find what you are looking for in my book.

Having a particular fondness for the hapless British hedgehog, I love that English found space for a dialect word for this.
