Acceity is a personal web journal about language, creativity, society, media, technology, nature, history, humor, and sundry other topics of no obvious relation to one another. This page is about Acceity.
Acceity (pronounced ak·SEE·it·ee; IPA: /æk'siːəti/) is my own neologism (it's a made up word), and it is purposefully without definition. Feel free to find your own meaning among the letters. The word is loosely inspired from the medieval term haecceity, itself a corruption of the Latin haecceitas, or "thisness." The term haecceity was coined by philosopher Duns Scotus, and it refers to the qualities or traits of a thing which make it that particular thing and not anything else.
