deklose (rhymes with "snooze"): deklosing, deklost
v: to deklose: to un-forget; to remember only when prompted; to remember something temporarily forgotten, when memory is triggered. Memories that cannot be retrieved are forgotten; memories that can be retrieved when a reminder is given are merely klost. See also: klose
Origin: from prefix "de-" (L "de") + "key" (ME "keye" via OE "cǣg") + "lose" (ME "losen" via OE "leosen" / Goth "fraliusan"); to lose as one loses one's keys (id est, temporarily), hence key-lose or klose.
