Non sequitur

A “non sequitur” is a phrase in Latin that translates to “it does not follow” in English. In logic and communication, it refers to a statement or conclusion that does not logically follow from the previous statement or argument. Essentially, it is a statement that lacks a clear or valid connection to the context or conversation in which it is used, making it seem out of place or irrelevant. Non sequiturs can often be used humorously or to highlight a disconnect in someone’s reasoning or communication.
