    Hello,

    Is "cinetosis" a real word? I've found it in WR, but I can't find it in the RAE. I know it means motion sickness. Is it a very forma word or very informal word and that's why it's not in the RAE or is that dictionary just missing it?! Is there another word that is better to use for motion sickness than cinetosis?

    Thanks,
    Gregooo

    I,ve heard this word a few times used as a curiosity; it is a very very formal word, or perhaps a medical term. We use only "mareo" and add the cause os it: me mareé en el tren/barco/coche.
