I had a similar problem with my Masters dissertation and the word
"interpellated":  no one knew what it meant, and oddly enough, my spell
chekker didn't query it except when I spelt it wrong due to sloppy typing
(as this post will probably demonstrate!!)
Most people were able to dissern what the word meant by the context of
its use (likewise in my own experience with "diegetic").  For the record,
I use interpellate to mean what the audience receives as text which is
not necessarily what the text-manufacturer intented (rhetorical
discourse).  All of this is working from ideas from Eagleton's *Ideology
- an introduction*.
