Article Title

An After-Dinner Mint

Authors

Ralph G. Beaman

Abstract

The article "Words, Non-words, Nonce Words" in the May 1971 Word Ways touched briefly on coined words. By this I mean words not in any dictionary, not in the spoken or written literature, in fact not in any known place -- but "words" that should be words, at least in the mind of some logologist. The article concluded that words coined only for their logological uniqueness were examples of bad logology.
