myoclonic jerk - No, it has nothing to do with jerks of the social kind. "A myoclonic jerk is the brief, involuntary twitching of a muscle or group of muscles. It may be caused either by a sudden muscle contraction, or a sudden lapse of contraction. This happens when a person is on the verge of falling asleep, and suddenly [has] a sensation or feeling that [she is] free falling through the air." {ED. Edited to follow Fowler Style and get rid of multiple inconsistencies of number agreement.}

e.g., It doesn't happen nearly as often as it did when I was a child, but I'm still awakened once in a while by a myoclonic jerk.

myth - Until I went to college, I was taught that a myth was fiction -- untrue, not something that really happened. In college I learned that a myth is "a traditional story accepted as history [and] serves to explain the world view of a people."

e.g., The myth that Edison lost his hearing when a conductor boxed his ears after Edison started a fire in the baggage car is apparently untrue. Edison said the incident never happened. | The myth of the black male's sexual prowess and his ability as a lover has long been perpetuated in rhythm and blues music. | I wonder what the results of a poll of men and women, both black and white, would show about the continuation of the myth of the black male's sexual prowess -- as broken down by age, race, and sex of those polled.
