Today to be explained without dereliction is another not frequently heard word- conniption.
So let’s break it down like this con-nip-tion.
Con is short for convict or by comprehension prisoner.
Nip is the desire to imbibe alcohol.
Tion is a Latin suffix expressing action hence activating the nip.
Thus with conviction I can state that conniption means a prisoner drinking alcohol.
However I’m not sure what the word is when a con can’t get any alcohol and then throws a fit.
