neonism

“Nee-on-izm”

n – A word or phrase which has recently been coined; a new word or phrase, a neologism.

“With changing generations, there are always neonisms forming– I can barely keep up!”

Formed irregularly from the Ancient Greek νέον (néon) (neon: neuter singular form of νέος (néos), neos, “new”) + the English -ism; compare the closely related ne- and neon, as well as the earlier synonym neologism.
