What's the difference between a complicality and a complication?


That would be , complication as the general term and complicality as the term for technical predicament; as what have the maker of the word said. :)

I am trying to submit a word in the dictionary:

Complicality: A technical complication; A technical predicament.

In a sentence - "The professor that is unable to access Microsoft Powerpoint during a lecture is considered to be a complicality."

Would this word be acceptable or inadmissible?

Your thoughts?



"The professor that is unable to access Microsoft Powerpoint during a lecture is considered to be a complicality."

I think whether it is "A professor or "The Professor" the sentence would still be grammatical but a little confusing.

Base on the definition you made for the word you are trying to submit, I do believe it's a noun referring to a situation wherein in there's a technical problem. Therefore, in the sentence:

"The professor that is unable to access Microsoft Powerpoint during a lecture is considered to be a complicality."

"Complicality" is the supposed predicative nominative of the/ a professor; however, base on the new word's definition it could not be the p.n. To make this right, the sentence should be:

"The professor who is unable to access Microsoft Powerpoint during a lecture experienced a complicality."

Does this make sense?:)
