Apparently there are more names for higher derivatives of position than you'd think. Most people are familiar with velocity (1st derivative of position) and acceleration (2nd derivative), but there are many more. Although I don't see a lot of secondary verification of these names.

-1st Derivative - Absement (or absition)

0th Derivative - Position

1st Derivative - Velocity

2nd Derivative - Acceleration

3rd Derivative - Jerk

4th Derivative - Jounce

5th Derivative - Crackle

6th Derivative - Pop

7th Derivative - Lock

8th Derivative - Drop
