hi again, Very little that I have seen in the way of words during my 70 years is new, merely a hi-jacking of original language.
The only genuine novel point in modern vocabulary is the use of far too many acronyms, ad nauseum!
Coded talk at it's worst.
Even in the theatrical world things have merely been corrupted for P.C. type modernity. from Mrs Christmas to a Female Doctor Who, nothing innovative merely a sad corruption of original intellectual property. A tired Morecambe & Wise style dislocation of the order of notes, but then again that is all music really is, an ever repeated playing of the same notes, just not always in the same order!

Even farcebook is not new, it used to denote a book, a book! of paper with pictures of students :)

I don't know when, but "there's no new thing under the sun" was being opined at least 24 centuries ago.
