The inability to retrieve the word for a concept
Dammit, what's that thing called again? I know it--it's on the tip of my tongue. Argh, my anomia is acting up again.

The state of not having a word for a concept
1) Man, there's a great word for that in Swahili, but there's no word for it in English. We need to come up with a new word to take care of this anominy.

2) I had this great idea, but it was totally anominous, so I made up a word for it.
