- A term for adoption of a made up term 2 answers
Sometimes, when I read essays, I see that writers make up words and by using them, they bring those words into existence.
In her article "Juban America", Ruth Behar uses the term "Juban", which is just the Jewish-Cuban identity, and though we know this term doesn't exist, she uses it. We know this word doesn't exist but after using it, it is brought into existence.
Is there a single word to name this strategy or phenomenon?
