It is another word for 'coined.' It makes more sense than than 'coined' because it is similar to the art of 'embossing.' I coined the word 'emboss' in that way to refer to how embossing 'pushes an alternate definition onto another word' just as people who do embossing would engrave things on that piece of paper. (or whatever they're engraving on XD)
Embossing happens in the English language a lot due to the fact that words are reused, so it gets a new meaning. Often causes CONFUSION. ( O_O) End the embossing please! They need to make new words! :p
