Word of the day

Today's dictionary.com's word of the day is:

diathesis \dahy-ATH-uh-sis\, noun:

Pathology. a constitutional predisposition or tendency, as to a particular disease or affection.

Example: Kennilinguists have an unconscious diathesis for dualistic metaphysics under the pretense of nondualism.

The di indicates the dualism and the a negates their thesis.

So maybe diarrhethesis?
