What does Anachronism Mean?

Anachronism is the decontextualization of something to be out of its time . It derives from the Greek anachronismós that refers to an event outside the time that happens.

Anachronism is synonymous with extemporaneous, incongruous, obsolete or outdated and antonym of chronological, contemporary, contemporary or contemporary.

The word anachronism is used to refer to a situation that does not match the era in which it is found, for example, “that there is no free and quality education is an anachronism that many countries live.”

The historical anachronism refers to a historical fact placed at the wrong time, for example, “Jesus is born in the time of Herod, around the fourth century BC”

Historical anachronisms are also found in the archaeological or geological area when pieces are apparently out of place due to dichotomies between antiquity and the technology used. In English this term is translated as oopart ( out of place artifact or out of place artifact ).

The literary anachronism, also called anachronism, is a literary style in which the timeline of history using the conductive line what happened instead of the altered when it happened.

Due to the technological advances of recent years, the term technological anachronism is beginning to be used to refer to old technologies that are obsolete today such as pagers or messages that only receive or transmit short text messages.

Anachronistic is used to adjectivize something that is not typical of the era in which it is found, for example, “In the United Nations Security Council there is still an anachronistic right of veto by the winners of World War II that it prevents building an international order or developing a fair and effective multilateralism.
