Languages are constantly evolving. Though purists may shudder at what they see as the degradation of ‘correct’ language use, innovative and new ways of using grammar, syntax and vocabulary show a bill of good health for a language.
At the vocabulary level, we find neologisms. A
neologism is a new word or expression: a newly coined term. New terms appear in order to put a name to a new reality; this is why they are often linked to a specific period, event or person.
At TermCoord we are also on the look-out for new words that may be of importance to translators and make the object of new entries in IATE. Here we present a glossary of neologisms. This complete neologism database will help you to learn the origin, terminology and to get familiar with these new terms. You can also visit our section on useful links dealing with a variety of neologisms.
