clairaudience (klair-AW-dee-uhns) - n., the supposed ability to hear things outside the range of normal perception.


Such as faraway voices, or voices of the dead. Not a new word to most of you who are role-playing gamers. Coined in 1864 on the model of clairvoyance, the ability to see things outside the range of normal perception, using audience, the act of hearing, instead of voyance, act of seeing -- both those, as well as clair, clear, being French words.
