More commonly spelt “neologism,” a neolojism is any word of recent formation. A word qualifies as a neolojism if (1) it is not a recorded element of the language, or (2) if, while recorded in one or more lexicons, it lacks a historical etymology. Neolojisms are frequently formed on the model of existing words, especially by using existing affices in accord with their etymological meanings. Sometimes these affices are misused, or false affices generated. For example, “prequel” is formed on the model of “sequel,” leading to the suspect generation of the prefix “se” and the stem “quel,” along with the implication of such terms as “postquel” and “inquel.” While neologisms are coined, neolojisms are Coped.
