Another Word For A Short Space Of Time …

Posted by Mathias in Form and Style, Writing Style

Instead of saying “a moment”, to denote  a short space of time, how about and interstice

(noun) \in-ˈtər-stəs\

2 : a short space of time between events

It can also be used to refer to a small gap in general.

1 a: a space that intervenes between things; especially: one between closely spaced things <interstices of a wall>
b: a gap or break in something generally continuous <the interstices of society> <passages of genuine literary merit in the interstices of the ludicrous … plots  — Joyce Carol Oates>
