Definition: At/the present or particular occasion.
Why this word?
It sounds silly.
I’m especially interested in terms meant to describe a unit of time that don’t reference or involve numerical calculation. I mean, think about it– “Moment”, “Second”, “Instance”, “Period”, “Occasion”… there aren’t very many words meant to describe time that aren’t goofy-sounding slang.
I like “Nonce”.
How to use the word nounce in a sentence?
Example: “The nonce had been perfect, but distraction had allowed it to bleed away before he had realized.”
