Neologism in different languages. From Wikipedia:A neologism (/niːˈɒlədʒɪzəm/; from Greek νέο- néo-, "new" and λόγος lógos, "speech, utterance") is the name for a newly coined term, word, or phrase that may be in the process of entering common use but that has not yet been accepted into mainstream language.[1][2] Term for creating coined word or term is called coining. Neologisms are often directly attributable to a specific person, publication, period, or event. Neolexia ("new word", or the act of creating a new word) is a synonym for it. The term neologism is first attested in English in 1772, borrowed from French néologisme (1734).[3] A neologism may also be a new usage of an existing word,[4][5] sometimes called a semantic extension.[6][7] This is distinct from a person's idiolect, one's unique patterns of vocabulary, grammar, and pronunciation.
