v)  Jacques Lacan’s use of ‘Bahnung’

-French FRAYAGE (from physiology): the fact of facilitating nervous fluxes

inside conductors through repetition. See also below the English

translation from Harrap’s Shorter French/English Dictionary, 2003, p405.

Perhaps someone can come up with an appropriate English term.
