Schemantics

noun; blending
Insignificant details.
 
Originally a mistake by the speaker, this word does not use the word “schematic” in its original meaning. It is only a part of the word because of its similarity to the word “semantics” a word referring to the meaning of a word or sentence, often used in popular culture to refer to the unimportance of arguing over small details in meaning. This word does not refer to meaning, but is a broadening of that idea in that it can be applied to any details, not just details of meaning.
Etymology : A blending of the words “schematic” and “semantics.”
