Connotation – Ambiguity – Neologism - Jargon NEOLOGISM Neologism is newly coined lexical units or existing lexical units that acquire a new sense. (Newmark, 1988: 140) A neologism is a word, term, or phrase that has been recently created (or "coined"), often to apply to new concepts, to synthesize pre-existing concepts, or to make older terminology sound more contemporary. Neologisms are especially useful in identifying invention, new phenomena, or old ideas that have taken on a new cultural context. (wikipedia.org)
