I asked 50 strangers to make up a new word. This is my new Internet Lexicon.
"The creative adult is the child who survived." - Ursula Lenguin
I was scrolling through TikTok the other day, as most 20 year olds do, when I came across a video asking people to write down their favorite questions to ask other people. I scrolled through the comments hoping to find some good questions to ask new friends, when I came across one in particular that caught my eye:
"Make up a brand new word, and tell me what it means."
At first, I was slightly jarred: How am I supposed to create a new word? Do I think of a random assortment of phonemes first, and then create a definition around it? Or do I think of a definition first, and then try to match the definition with an appropriate sound?
I decided to create my own word: Frelated. A combination of the words "frustration" and "elated", it describes the feeling when you make a breakthrough revelation, but you're mad at yourself that you didn't think of that idea sooner.
I wanted to see what other people would say, though. What other words are out there, waiting to be created by people? And so, I went on Omegle of all places to find random strangers that I could ask the same question.
After several hours of trial and error, here are 50 brand new words from strangers on the Internet.

Of course, because it's the internet, I wasn't surprised that a lot of these words were unoriginal synonyms of other words or NSFW. I probably interviewed over 100 people in the 3 hours I spent on Omegle trying to get people to answer this question, and only 50 people answered. Some were thrown off by the question, others tried and failed to even think of a new word. But the ones who stayed and entertained my question, and those who answered with more wholesome answers, made me realize just how different we are creatively.
My favorite words of the above list are omidge, flumbus, vulling, and racka. I think they all describe feelings that we all know of / experience, but we haven't had a unique word to describe them.
What are your favorites on the list? And if you could make up a word, what would it be? What would it mean?
