An SCAism is a term that has been coined or adopted by many in the SCA which is considered by some to be inappropriate either because it is a modern term, a constructed term, or a term which doesn't mean what it did in period. Unfortunately it is very hard to get rid of such words.

More authentic versions could be:

  • Autocrat: Steward
  • Feastocrat: Chief Cook
  • Eric: tourney field or lists
  • List field: tourney field or lists
  • List keeper/officer: lists keeper/officer

The word "SCAism" has also been extended to refer to traditions and practices that are particular to the SCA and its Known World, rather than mirroring those that were commonplace in period.
