Everyone has their own personal vocabulary - their handle on things that they often think about. I think it’s great to share our personal vocabularies; they reveal a lot about the way we individually perceive the world.

The words may be words that already exist but are used with a different connotation or sense, or new coinings altogether.

I like making up words. Mostly I use them in talking to or writing for myself. Here is a list of vocabulary I have come up with, with varying levels of usage. Commonly used ones are bolded.
