The hissing swish of tires in the moderate rain also resulted in clouds of dense mist thrown up by the treads of tires. Tom found it difficult to judge the distance to the car in front of him in the twilight. He wished all vehicles had automatic or always-on lights. If not that, how about efficient road-grabbing tires which didn't also spew water back into the air. His knuckles ached from his grip on the steering wheel. "Please, God, no more semi-trailers in the next lane tonight!"

/ˈsɪŋkrɪtɪz(ə)m/
noun
mass noun
1 The amalgamation or attempted amalgamation of different religions, cultures, or schools of thought.
2 Linguistics
The merging of different inflectional varieties of a word during the development of a language.


Origin
Early 17th century from modern Latin syncretismus, from Greek sunkrētismos, from sunkrētizein ‘unite against a third party’, from sun- ‘together’ + krēs ‘Cretan’ (originally with reference to ancient Cretan communities).

==========

All our attempts at syncretism are predicated on the existence of the theory of the peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Each component is from very different origins, with different developmental processes, and yet, the combination represents one of the most widely accepted aggregations known to man.

In France, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (nor peanut butter and jam sandwiches) are not that notorious. I don't know whether this form of syncretism has crossed the Atlantic to reach the UK, but even if it is the case, the Channel has kept the Continent isolated. Many Frenchmen would rather decant some red wine, and have nothing more for their breakfast. (I suppose Belgians do not decant beer before drinking it, that would spoil the "mousse").

Curiously enough I remember seeing once a Disney comics translated into French, where Donald's three nephews asked for "du beurre de cacahuète et des sandwiches à la confiture" which translated back would be "(peanut butter) and (jam sandwiches)", not "(peanut butter and jam) sandwiches", which would be "des sandwiches au beurre de cacahuète et à la confiture". So the translator was so ignorant of US mores in general, and in particular of the "most widly accepted syncretism" that he misunderstood the syntax of that phrase ! At that time, I knew enough to guess what the original was, but I suppose most French kids reading that would have wondered what on Earth "beurre de cacahuète" could be.
