Thinking about marketing speak got me thinking about neologisms, or words that are made up or assigned a new meaning. Marketing people do this a lot, but most of us make up words every once in a while or hear a new word that we like.
Some of my favorite neologisms are blogosphere, which means all the blogs in the world, and McMansions, which refer to the cookie-cutter, super-sized houses that you see a lot in new subdivisions.
