I went somewhere this weekend that my husband and I described as surrealistic. Then he asked me, since I'm the English major, for the definition of it. I didn't know it off the top of my head, although we did use it correctly. So when we got home later, we looked it up.
Merriam-Wesbster Collegiate Dictionary defines surrealistic using the word. You know, when you were in grade school they told you not to define the word with the word? But it is a form of the word, so that's legit, I guess.
the principles, ideals, or practice of producing fantastic or incongruous imagery or effects in art, literature, film, or theater by means of unnatural juxtapositions and combinations
It's from the French, if there are any etymology buffs out there.
Where we went was absolutely surrealistic. Especially the incongruous imagery by means of unnatural juxtapositions and combinations.
