    No, it is not. Unlike astonish and astonishment, surprise is surprise as a verb and as a noun.

    I didn't find it in any of three dictionaries that I looked in but on the yahoo search engine I typed in definition of surprisement and it gave me a whole bunch of links. One of the links says surprisement is a noun and it's the same thing as surprisal which is being surprised or something that is surprising. The link below is the one I am talking about.

    hopefully you are on the side that says "hell no, that's not a word" because, well, it's not.

    but when you look up the definition of the suffix "ment" in the dictionary, it seems like that would work. so, now that makes me wonder.....hmmmm.....see below for definitions/uses. good question.

    -ment (suffix)

    1. action, process

    2. result of an action, or condition resulting from an action

    3. instrument or agent of an action

    4. place

    Not likely. There's already the definition of surprise.

    I'm thinking no dude. Now this sound like a word George Bush would say, we all know how he likes to make up words.
