Here's an interesting article on neologisms, and it gives an example
of one made up by C.S. Lewis -- Bulverism.

It's not used much nowadays, though I've seen quite a lot of Bulverism
on social media recently as people insist that a certain mass murderer
must be called a terrorist rather than a lone wolf, not because he is
one, but because they desperately *want* him to be one.

Anyway, the article is here:
