I want to form a new word to reflect the point in evolutionary history when a specific type of psychological trauma first appeared.
I've thought of prefixing the word 'trauma' with either archaeo (as in archaeozoology) or archae (as in archaebacteria), but I'm not sure which one to use. Can anyone help, please?
If this topic is more suitable to another forum (or even website!), then please let me know.
Any help or advice would be very much appreciated :)
