When the master wordsmith Dylan, creates a word to suit his needs. That accurately describes how people are feeling without being a real word.
Examples of Dylanism:
"Joygasm" and "coolies" were both words originally created by Dylan however due to the crazy world of the internet , plenty of other people now might claim them as their own. Joygasm is a orgasm of joy, and coolies was was something that was "cool" to the max.

The act of adding poetic beauty and/or deeper meaning to a sentence or phrase. Similar to the ways of Bob Dylan.
Evey Hammond: Who are you?

V: Who? Who is but the form following the function of what and what I am is a man in a mask.

Evey Hammond: Well I can see that.

V: Of course you can. I'm not questioning your powers of observation; I'm merely remarking upon the paradox of asking a masked man who he is.
