He gave you a beautiful hint:

tmesis |təˈmēsis|
noun ( pl. -ses |-sēz|)
the separation of parts of a compound word by an intervening word or words, 
heard mainly in informal speech (e.g., a whole nother story; shove it back 
any-old-where in the pile).
ORIGIN mid 16th cent.: from Greek tmēsis ‘cutting,’ from temnein ‘to cut.’
