Etymology edit

Learned borrowing from Ancient Greek παράνοια (paránoia, madness), from παράνοος (paránoos, demented), from παρά (pará, beyond, beside) + νόος (nóos, mind, spirit).

By surface analysis, para- (abnormal, beyond) +‎ nous (mind) +‎ -ia ((medical) condition).

Pronunciation edit

Noun edit

paranoia (countable and uncountable, plural paranoias or (archaic) paranoiæ)

  1. The obsolete name for a psychotic disorder, now called delusional disorder, often (in one of 6 subtypes) characterized by delusions of persecution and perceived threat against the individual affected with the disorder, and often associated with false accusations and general mistrust of others
    Antonym: pronoia
