Neologism

A Neologism is a newly invented word or term; it may also refer to a new meaning for a pre-existing word or term. Rapid changes and progress in technology create a perfect environment for the invention of Neologisms.

A perfect example of a pre-existing word becoming a Neologism is mouse; just a furry rodent before computers, but also a piece of computer equipment afterwards.
