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.
1. action, process
2. result of an action, or condition resulting from an action
3. instrument or agent of an action

no i think you should make it a word, because i promise i would use it 24/7!!
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.
no way jose. What definition are you giving it?
Umm No Dont Think So :) x
