Clang Associations


Updated April 23, 2014

Clang associations are formally defined as "psychic associations resulting from sounds, often observed in the manic phase of manic-depressive psychosis." In simpler terms, clang associations are groupings of words based on their sounds, generally rhyming or partially rhyming, without necessarily having any logical reason to be put together.
"Imagine the worst
Systematic, sympathetic
Quite pathetic, apologetic, paramedic
Your heart is prosthetic"
