n. (plural of neologism English)

Usage examples of "neologisms".

The phrases and neologisms which we take over and use without remembering their origin do not always come from writers we admire.

From this ancient tongue, which was early as familiar to him as the French, he borrowed certain mannerisms, certain tricks of style, certain neologisms, and also, to some extent, his simplicity of manner and the cadence of his prose.

This was a careful criticism of the neologisms introduced into French by the Revolution.
