Firstly, thank you for sharing this with us!
What was the first word you came up with, and what inspired you to invent said word?
MD with a P.Hd in Immunology who has interest in literature... oh my my. And that extended sabbatical you took to pursue your dream.... Lovely. May your tribe grow..
which part of the planet are you from...?
Share your childhood memories... who was your fierce competitor during your academics and your favourite writer / their works...
which is one book you would love to take along with you if your were to be sent to a lonely island to live the rest of your life...
When you come up with a phenomenon for a word, what is your process for actually assigning a word to the phenomenon?
I think it's great that you identify certain common experiences and distill them into words...do you remember all (or most) of them in the same way that we remember normal words? Do you think them? Use them in conversation? I'm interested to know how these words have made a difference in your life.
Hi Javier. Aare the equivalents of any of your neologisms already in existence in other languages?
I am interested in the fact that some cultures label emotions, behaviours and feelings that others don't readily recognise, such as 'Iktsuarpok', an Inuit term for the state of anticipation that develops when waiting for a friend to arrive.
Have you seen any of your words become adopted by others for general use? I feel we all create words when convenient; it is whether or not they possess utility for others that makes that act meaningful.
How do you make sure that all your new words are cromulent?
Do you have any neologisms regarding movies or movie-making?
Thanks for answering...
How do Latin America look at India... & what is your perception of my country, India..? Not Asia.
...sometimes I think / imagine of all good things that could happen to me (knowing definitely that they won’t occur) like flying to a far off exotic country on a eternal holiday, winning a lottery, finding a sack full of currency notes, meeting & dining with my fav celebrity etc., and feel overwhelmingly joyous and happy inside. Is there a word for ‘this’ feeling...?
Hey thanks for publishing the dictionary, did you know that reading fictional works enlarges people's vocabularies the most?
Have you ever made up a word but later found out that there is actually a word for it? If yes, What word was it?
Do you remember all of your made-up words? Are you in the process of having those words to be considered as part of the english vocabulary?
Have you ever talked to someone about neologism and the possible connection to a mental disorder?
Not being a dick but when I read that you make up alot of words I remembered reading that it could be related to schizophrenia IIRC.
On another note, I think it's good that you try to introduce new words to the English language and I wish you all the best.
Which is your favourite quote from a) your own literature and b) from another author?
Where do you draw most of your inspiration from? Having a medical background I'm sure many of your words have some relation there, but outside of that?
