Blackleaf:
There should be an 11th Landmark.

#11.  If you can not articulate your theory in regular English without excessive inclusion of made-up or redefined words, there is something wrong with your theory.  You may also need to consult a doctor.


--- Quote from: Wikipedia ---Neologism
"In psychiatry, the term is used to describe the creation of words which only have meaning to the person who uses them, independent of its common use meaning. It is considered normal in children, but a symptom of thought disorder indicative of a psychotic mental illness such as schizophrenia in adults. Usage of neologisms may also be related to aphasia acquired after brain damage resulting from a stroke or head injury. People with  autism may also use neologisms."

There are over 900,000 words in the English language.  You probably don't need to make up any more to talk about roleplaying games.

Hmm.

I tend to use real, but also really fucking obscure, words - and not always english ones.

Aos:
I make up words primarily to ridicule others.

I guess it depends on how obscure, and how you use them.  Maybe your reasons for picking them too.  

Also, if you've recently had a fall. ;)

Schaudenfreud (which I'm probably spelling wrong), Fiero, Naches...   These are really, really nicely precise words.

Also, I like saying them out loud.
