"Adornable." Yes, you can groan now.

Adornian would seem the most logical, and it pulls up a reasonable number of hits on google scholar...

Undine, I'll be groaning for a week on that one. I think I'll have to go with Adornian, although my own personal impulse was to use Adornovian, with all of 1 Google hit (maybe two, with this comment!)

Hmm, I would have thought "Adornan" but I pronounce everything weird.

Does Jameson use the term? He's all about Adorno. I'd have to actually plow through my postmodernity book to find out, though. (He wrote a whole book on Adorno, which I dutifully read, and I cannot tell you the first thing it is about!)

PS congrats on the paper shaping up nicely (if long-ly)!

Now thanks to Undine, next week when I'm teaching Adorno, I'm going to be snickering on the inside...
