What are neologisms?
Newly coined terms, words, or phrases, that may be commonly used in everyday life but have yet to be formally accepted as constituting mainstream language by some of the main language institutions. Neologisms represent the evolving nature of (for example) the English language. We create new words to express concepts or ideas that were previously expressed using other words or by using words that may not have existed at all.
