I happened to come across a little book, “Current Glossary: Words Coined Since the War.” Here are some of them:
as’pi-rin, n. A white compound used as a drug in the cure of headaches and rheumatism.
bob’go, n. A kind of antelope in Africa; its meat is good for food.
cat’ta-lo, n. A cross between an American bison and a cow.
dart, n. A short, pointed spear-like weapon of steel dropped by airmen in attacks on the enemy.
free’lance, n. A rover in literature, a writer not in the employ of one firm.
griz’zly bear. A new kind of dance.
You get the idea.
P.S. Some more literary nostalgia from the archives:
