Someone suggested we make a neologism dictionary, and I thought that was a really fun idea. So here are the ones I could think of or find, some because they are recent, some because they were just too good to forget, some that were referenced in a recent lateral adventure, and some that I could find by browsing the archives for the past year.

Blarp (v): 1. To collect coins. 2. To file. 3. To serve. 4. To crimp hair.
Blubt (v): To close one's eyes while brushing one's teeth.
Bluft (v): To search for an item one is in fact wearing.
Divowe (v): To leave dishes to dry on their own, instead of drying them with a towel.
Flaz (v): To unfocus one's eyes, as when viewing a stereogram.
Frass (v): To kick bedding off because it is too hot.
Glarp (v): To name a child.
Jurple (v): To lick jello, yogurt, or ice cream from its wrapper before eating the rest.
Keti (v): To save ticket stubs.
Marisi (v): To look up the weather somewhere so long in advance of being there, that it is useless.
Nimthim (n): A "you are here" map that is arranged on the floor in the correct orientation.
Pleak (v): To race raindrops down a car window.
Prashck (v): To lose "The Game".
Rarpse (v): To chew away the outer, bitterer layer of a carrot.
Rerpse (v): To chew a carrot as a beaver would gnaw on a tree.
Scrube (n): A person whose picture appears on Google Maps. Uber scrube (n): An animal whose picture appears on Google Maps without being blurrred.
Scrund (n): A misconception that persists because the relevant subject is not discussed. Passive scrund (n): A scrund that was not conscious until the subject arose.
Sklurp period (n): The time after buying new shoes, in which one bothers to untie the laces when taking them off.
Slamper (v): To fill in the last word of a crossword puzzle.
Susan (v): To spoil a puzzle on the LTPF.
Vab (v): To try to outstare a snake.
Vihslem (n): The sound made by an alarm clock.
Wadrow (v): Same as pleak, but while not inside a vehicle.
Zarx (v): To ride a roller coaster.

I know there are more, like I remember that around the same time as "flaz" (which was one of the first neologisms), there was another verb that had something to do with looking for land on the horizon while at sea. And of course there are some that are still not quite solved, like "tusger" and "pinicla".

And I don't know a better place for this, as we can't post in the solved or classic puzzles forums, and I feel that making the chatroom be about this for the time being would be unfairly "hogging" it.

Biograd ,

That's a tremendous effort and brings back some very happy memories. I think the horizon one was called Blirring but I'm not 100% sure.

My favourite on the list is to Bluft. As a regular blufter that really made me chuckle.

I don't see a problem with putting this in the Chatroom as that's what it's there for and I'm sure this will generate much chat.

Someone with a lot of time might copy the list with the name of the word's creator . I'm responsible for 4 on the list namely : Scrube/Uber Scrube, Marisi, Jurple & Sklurp period.

One again well done on a really fantastic bit of work.

Yep, the horizon one was "to blirr".

I'm responsible for - let's see...Susan, Vihslem, and Zarx. Although I think I've had more than that...there was also:

Japer (v): To copy and paste a walkthrough on an Internet forum, as opposed to writing one yourself.
Klohp-jarz (v): To attempt to catch leaves falling from the trees.
Loirpse (v): To officiate a wedding.

And some that were not my own:

Credge (n): The instant between realizing one's keys are inside a house, car, etc. and the door to said house, car, etc. closing, resulting in one's keys being locked in.
Pripple (v): To impersonate Sean Connery.
Qwert (v): To attempt to learn a foreign language while watching a foreign film with subtitles on.

There's certainly more, but I don't have the time to look right now.

I will just say that Peter's "jurple" is a personal favorite of mine, but then again, I'm biased towards it: that was the first puzzle I solved.

Excellent work on the list, Biograd!

Tiny correction: the definitions of "Rarpse" and "Rerpse" are switched in the list.

Oh "blirring", yes now that you say it, I remember. But what exactly was it about the horizon? And I see that "pinicla" was just solved. "Begradab" really sounds like it's something backwards, doesn't it?

It's great being in a forum of people with excellent memories. Someone even remembered one of my own, ducthic, that I had forgotten (even though I do still ducthic regularly).

Going back to the source...

Blir (v): To look all about oneself and not see solid, dry land.

And the word is spelled with one "r", although "blirring" is the proper spelling in the...whatever tense it is.

I believe "blirring" is both the present participle and the gerund.

That gives me another idea: Spanish neologisms!

blirrer: mirar alrededor y no ver la tierra
A mí me gusta blirrer. Yo blirro todos los días. Ahora, yo estoy blirriendo.

Nimue may confirm but i think the und in Scrund represents the word understanding or misunderstanding for that matter.

Top marks Balin for putting all the names to each neo. It's a brilliant list full of strange but wonderful words and definitions.

I'm expecting a glut of Neologistic puzzles now. We should come up with a collective noun for Neologistic puzzles . How about a dictionary of neologistics.

Blarfingar (n): a self-referencing secret rulebreaker (ie a rulebreaker where you don't say it's a rulebreaker) that is disguised as a neologism puzzle. However, a blarfingar rulebreaker is uncnventional in other ways too. While questions which make progress on the solution must be answered truthfully, questions which are on the wrong track can be answered in any way the host desires.
Etymology : Episode of Saturday Night Live in which Betty white tells the Census taker that her name is "Blarfingar Blarfingar", albeit spelled "John Smith".

Could I be a bit of a pedant here and offer the opinion that Greg's Cabblepaddle is not really a neologistic puzzle . My understanding that the purpose of a neo puzzle is come up with a new word for something that does not have a single word definition. I mean to eat is to eat and therefore cabblepaddle would be a synonym . Celemorph is a good example of a neo as there is no verb defined as meeting a celebrity in a dream.

Not an important issue but I wouldn't want to see a whole raft of neo puzzles for words that already exist.

Any thoughts ?

So I've re-figured out my wiki login. As soon as I get some time and figure out how to format it in the wiki, I will try to put this stuff up there and hopefully link it to Doctapeppa's page.

Thanks for keeping the list up to date, Balin :-)

Does anyone know of any neologistic puzzles that have been missed, before I start this?
