comment Is there a list of words coined by authors such as Shakespeare?
According to the Guardian, Milton may be responsible for introducing up to 630 new words. Some are here and some are here.

comment “Crack” as a positive noun?
From OED definition: craic is a noun, chiefly Irish variant spelling of crack (sense 4 of the noun). Origin is 1970s: Irish, from English crack. The English word apparently entered Irish English from Scots in the mid 20th century and subsequently assumed an Irish Gaelic form. But it is very much a contemporary slang word in Ireland.

comment “He was telling me that he is going…” vs. “He told me that he is going…”
So again - if something happened during the telling that you want to mention, you would use He was telling me that he is going on vacation when/and/while X happened. If you want to just want to state that he told you, then you would use He told me that he is going on vacation.
