Wednesday Word: Pareidolia

Hello friends! I'm excited to be a poster in this community. I work with words every day as I catalogue digital files. My first word is one that I learned about this week in my English class this semester.

Pareidolia (/pærɪˈdoʊliə/ parr-i-DOH-lee-ə) - the a psychological phenomenon of seeing patterns, such as a face, but none actually exists. Pareidolia can be visual or aural.

A famous visual example of pareidolia is the Face on Mars.
