- The word stems from the same process that made the word “geologist”, among others. It was created in an ironic comment on the class and this word journal assignment – describing the process of collecting neologisms by creating yet another neologism.
One who studies neologisms
Etymology : from the same roots as “neologism”, “neo” + “log” + “ist”, “ism” meaning “one who performs/does an action”
Source : “So if you’re collecting and studying these neologisms for this class, does that make you a neologist?” (conversation with friend, 11/10/2016)
