MY FAVORITE NEOLOGISMS
A neologism is a new word or expression that usually comes from contemporary culture. Here is a list of a few that I found online. Ok, I made the first one up, but LMK what you think.
- •DoppelhäterDoppelgänger + hater = They hate us cuz they ain't us, but they want to be us... and yes, technically this is also a portmanteau...
- •AstroturfingCreating an artificial hype around an event, movement or person aka fake grassroots. Yelp does this, the entertainment industry does too, and so do political parties.
- •GeobraggingConstantly updating the status of your location especially when vacationing. It's a bad idea because it generates more jealousy in your doppelhäters and lets thieves know you aren't home!
- •404Someone who is clueless
- •Last one: https://youtu.be/dQw4w9WgXcQ
