If you felt that you needed a word, would you take it upon yourself to create it?


Would you feel like it was a problem, or like it was wrong, to create a word yourself? Or would you feel as if it was too much of a bother to do it and just wait for it to be created? Or would you do it some other way?

    Was your Hub fiction or reality? For fiction it happens all of the time, I believe that would catch on.

    I would not, unless it was fiction, because then I would feel like a kid.

    I hit the dictionaries, (I have a few) and the thesaurus for a for the right one too, but I would not feel right creating one.

    I like Shakespeare. I like etymology. I hate entomology. So I agree.

    Since I won a spelling bee with a 28 letter word in the 7th grade, I think that I would keep searching for a word to fit what I needed. Besides, creating one would make me feel like a kid again and I do not like that.

    It sounds as if you have young students. :-) That sounds like a fun reason.

    I would definitely research it too for reality, for fiction I would just come up with a new one.
