Frightophobia - fear of irrational fear.

Hi Beam - shouldn't that be 'dilemnaphobia'?

gauchephobia - fear of being found out that you always thought gouache was a stew with squash


I had thought that it was spelled with an 'n', but TFD says two 'm's.

I also found this at stackexchange.com:
"The incorrect spelling 'dilemna' is often seen in common usage. It appears to have been taught in many areas of the United States and all over the world, including (but not limited to) France, England, Jamaica and Australia. There is no prima facie reason for this substitution error and there is no erroneous parallel to be found with the word 'lemma', from which 'dilemma' derives".
