Specific dialect q: "recordarser(?) : to awaken"

This is my first post, and an obscure question. Thank you in advance for any help!

I remember, years ago, reading an interview with Jorge Luis Borges in which he mentioned a word which in a regional Spanish dialect (probably Argentinian, but I'm not positive) meant "to awaken."

He mentioned that it was interesting that the word-- "recordarser," or something similar, I think-- literally translated, meant "to remember oneself."

I can't seem to find any evidence online of this word's existence-- is anyone here familiar with it, or something like it?

I know that "recordar" means "to remember," but am specifically looking for a similar word meaning "to awaken."

Thanks again.
