'connectic energy' for 'kinetic energy'

Apart from an extra kuh they’re homophones, and the more familiar connect can make some kind of sense.

These ions release their connectic energy to the growing film allowing lateral movement of deposited material to densify the growing film, minimize pinhole …

The connectic energy of the string stays mostly on the string causing it to resonate with a more full, rounder sound, with longer sustain.

If the wheel is not rotating the charge will run down and TPMS will come on. It has some sort of connectic energy charging system in the TPS, ...

The connectic energy from the brakes is used to make electricity to make the turbo from the exhaust work. It is a very complex race car

Lots of examples. I don’t know what that does to connectic, exactly. People might even be thinking of connection but spelling it kinectic . There are some cases of kinection that may be examples of that sort of thing, e.g.

A Kinection to the Force. The Jedi was confused. To be fair, he’d been confused for a long time, ever since Order 66 was given.

But most of the examples of kinection that Google first serves up look advertent. It does seem reasonable that at least some of those spelling kinectic may be thinking of connection, though, and much more probable that those spelling connectic are.

The “kin” in kinectic may be (however unconsciously) the source of an assumption of connectivity, for kinship is connection, whether it’s literal familial kinship or, more broadly, being “akin” to something.
