Neologism Made up words

A neologism is "a newly coined word or expression"

Try It!

One of the most famous neologists was William Shakespeare!

William Shakespeare is now famous for making words up in his plays and sonnets. A lot of these are words we still use today!

Because of Shakespeare and neologisms, our English language has expanded to include more creative references and words.
