I had thought
"Derailment." But what with the appalling habit our hero
has developed of going his own way, the nature of his
derailment might not be correctly summed by the word
"Derailment." It's a problem that I could solve with the
French word Detournement, which has an accent acute over
the first e.
I know very well
that English Speaking People are very suspicious of the
diacritic in written words. Use a cedilla and eyes start to
roll. We prefer incomprehensible spelling. So it's a
problem, Fortunately there are alternatives to "A
Derailment." I just cannot think of them at the moment.
