Is overwhelment a word? If not, what is its equivalent?
As far as I can tell, no, it's not a word. To get an equivalent, you have to deposit a definition.
Overwhelment? No! But "overwhelmingness" is the noun version of "overwhelmed."
Some sources on the Internet list both overwhelmment and overwhelmingness, but there are a lot of native speakers opposing this usage.
Separate names with a comma.
