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. Here we present a glossary of neologisms. You can also visit our section on useful links dealing with a variety of neologisms.
