Recently, I came across a beautiful word 'Wynorrific', defined on Urban dictionary as:
Something being both visually beautiful (pleasurable) and horrific or terrible at the same time.
The word "awesome" has lost its meaning on similar lines. In contemporary times, it is more used as extremely impressive in daily routine or you can say, it is overused to mean extremely impressive. So, the meaning of the word awesome getting obsolescent day by day can we use this word to mean something both being beautiful and terrible?
There are nearly 400+ search results on Google. Also, it has been used in/on
the Philadelphia Inquirer news paper
the Artblog site presenting art collection named "Wynorrific Times"
Name of a music album on Spotify
a Singapore photography website
I found this word on one of the social networks and I loved the way it was used. Later, I found it on Urban Dictionary. But when I checked it online on Webster or Oxford dictionaries there was no reference of it.
So, my question in general about using neologisms:
What are the general guidelines for using a newly coined word?
Where can and can't we use this word?
