lexipoeia, or lexicopoeia n (Gr. lexis, "word, phrase, expression," from legein, say, and Gr. poiein, "to make or compose") – word-composition, word-creation; the minimal genre of literature, the art of composing a single word, a neologism (from roots and combining forms)
There are many sorts of neologisms: new brand names, scientific terms, political or technical jargon, colloquialisms, and slang. When a word is composed for the word's sake, as a manifestation of its beauty, this genre of verbal creativity is called "lexipoeia."
