I make us new words frequently and often not intentionally.  I find myself hearing a word come out of my mouth and then ask ... is that a word? Is is now.

Haven't heard the orange one. 

I hear that NAR is still trying to redefine the word "Realtor" to mean "A real estate agent that adheres to the code of ethics."

 

There are many words that were popularly defined out here in the 90s that have since been rebranded again.
