Citations for oneiric
To be sure, it is easy to assume that in the domain of the illogical, the fantastic, the subconscious and oneiric, variety is inexhaustible, and that every new and slightly different juxtaposition of unrelated elements constitutes a new departure. John Simon, "Walking Redundancy," New York, June 23, 1969
At night they watched the fireworks--fountains, spark-foaming rockets, yellow starbursts high over Poland. That oneiric season. Thomas Pynchon, Gravity's Rainbow, 1973
Origin of oneiric
Oneiric comes from the Greek word óneiros meaning "dream" and the suffix -ic, which forms adjectives from loanwords from Greek and Latin, as in metallic and poetic. It entered English in the 1850s.
