"Bouffage" reminds me "bouffant" -- I wonder if the words are related (i.e., if bouffage refers to food piled high on a plate the way bouffant refers to hair piled high on a head)? Hm... In any case, what a great word. :)

From several sources, including link provided, Onomatonomia means obsession with a particular word which the person uses repeatedly or which intrudes into consciousness or an irrational motive for performing trivial or repetitive actions, even against your will

I would love to know the word for "vexation with being unable to find the right word"
