Words that Originated in Literature

How many words are originated in literature? Here are some we pick for you.

Example: “Have not I the most reason to complain, when I see these very Yahoos carried by Houyhnhnms in a vehicle, as if they were brutes, and those the rational creatures?”

“Never had Shangri-La offered more concentrated loveliness to the eye; the valley lay imagined over the edge of the cliff, and the image was of a deep unrippled pool that matched the peace of his own thoughts.”

“The thought police would get him just the same. He had committed-would have committed, even if he had never set pen to paper-the essential crime that contained all others in itself. Thoughtcrime, they called it.”

“And then, just to show them, I'll sail to Ka-Troo and bring back an It-Kutch, a Preep, and a Proo, a Nerkle, a Nerd, and a Seersucker too!”

“Factoids ... that is, facts which have no existence before appearing in a magazine or newspaper, creations which are not so much lies as a product to manipulate emotion in the Silent Majority.”

Success!
