"Neo-words" is a compact reference book that collects words and phrases so new they have not yet been recorded in dictionaries: "celebutante" (a person who is famous for not really doing anything); "ultraconsumer" (a person who has a compelling desire to buy the newest and often the most faddish products); and "DINK" (acronym for double income, no kids). Illustrated by Elwood Smith, "Neo-words" is designed both as a useful tool for the serious lexicographers and a lighthearted look at some of the most unusual words in the English language.
