Sorry Jackie, as Trom says, it must have been before my time too.
and you know how things go, cycles. The discussion was about
phobias and the word for the fear of PB stuck on your palate
before it evolved/regressed.

I wish I'd learnt Latin. I think you must be correct Ts.... Cibophobia might be the fear of food!

Because "cibus" is food (from my Latin days), I'd say
something related to food, but being a fear, is it related
to fear of food? Like Anorexia? Some sort of food-related
disorder.

I confess, because honesty is important, that I looked it up
in my dictionary, but it is not there. (It is not on the
scroll down list, that is.) And that is as far as I looked
and had it been I would not post.

it should be noted, at this point, that phobia is being too narrowly defined as 'fear', to wit (from AHD4):

2) A strong fear, dislike, or aversion

so cibophobia is more likely defined as :dislike or aversion to food: link

Thanks, Olly, very much.
I did not know how the "ignore" works. Seems like he misses
out on a lot. Must be difficult living that way.
Thanks, again.
