Have you created any new words...

... and made people use them?

Oh yeah, I know: There is nothing new under the sun. Everything has already been thought and said and done.

But never the less: Sometimes you may stumble upon using a word that surely has been there as a possibility all the time but was not actually used.

I did that. More than once.

My best succes of that kind was creating the exact opposite of a term with which somebody in an interview expressed his negative opinion of a certain phenomenon. That "new" word is now among the 10 most used when people make searches in one particular niche of the Web.

I have made other "new" terms too. Not so succesful though a couple of them may eventually grow to be. And the proces goes on. One word just appeared for the first time in my logs this morning and inspired me to write this post.

Of course this is not really important, but for a webmaster with opinions to express and with a deep love for the magic of language it is nice to see your linguistic creations coming back to you.

Anybody else experiencing this?
