I was talking to a friend about rhyme, and he asked whether there was a word for a rhyme that occurs within a line of poetry and not at the end of the line. "Internal rhyme", I said. "Oh, is that all?", he said.

It occurred to me that there should be a word for the obsessive fixation that there has to be a word with a Greek or Latin derivation to describe any linguistic or literary phenomenon. I propose "analphyxia".

That sounds sensible to me.
