Sento che alcune persone, che hanno ottime capacità di memorizzazione, dicono 'ho un cervello memorioso'.

"Memorioso" sembra avere una sonorità interessante, tanto che forse può essere considerata una parola doc così come le altre.

Cosa sapreste dirmi in merito? Usate o conoscete questa parola?

    I've never heard it. But word jokes adding -oso are common; è risparmiosa was used for advertising a car. I don't think this is a good question.

    Per quel che conta, è la prima volta che lo sento.

  • Non c'è nel dizionario, magari era "cervello prodigioso"..

Never heard of. I don't even think it's in a dictionary. It could be a funny way to say "memorabile" as if you talk to a little kid or as a joke, but it's not used on formal/normal occasions.

    Well, but the OP refers to a meaning which is different from the one of "memorabile". So it should be a different case from, for example, "morbido" becoming "morbidoso".

  • I know, on the OP example, "ho un cervello memorioso", it means that he has a great brain because it can remember things. But "memorioso" it's not really a word or at least it's far less used then "morbidoso" which I hear almost every day.

It's not at all used nowadays. If you want to praise someone for his/her memory, you could just say

Ha buona memoria

  • Was it used in the past?
