Hello there and good morning my lovelies!
neologism – a new word, usage or expression
- Such neologisms as cyberspace and virtual reality come from computer technology
Neologisms are appearing in English all the time, originating from a variety of sources. Though –log means “word” and neo– means “new”, a neologism doesn’t have to be an entirely new word. Rap, a very old word, was first used in the 1920s to mean “talk,” and in the 1970s to describe a new type of “talk music,” and each new use was also a neologism in its time.
