    No, I've never heard of it, the OED has never heard of it, and most people have never heard it. You will find a very small number of uses of it in Google Books (about 200 compared to 66 million for 'destruction'), and T.S. Eliot used it playfully in a comic poem as a rhyme for 'employment', but basically it's not an acceptable English word.
