Other favorites from the ever funny Philosophical Lexicon:

assearltion, n. A speech act whose illocutionary force is identical with the speaker. “He assearled himself across the room.”

deleuzion, n. A false, persistent philosophical belief, unsubstantiated by evidence or argument. “He suffered from the deleuzion that Spinoza could be used to clarify Lacanian psychoanalysis.”
