Subject: New words?

"... are you inventing a new language. [isolationist reverence of] and [disrespected]".

Not new words. 

"I think you spend to much time roling on the floor ,you should spend ... less time making new words."

President Harding invented the word normalcy which now is used in standard English more than normality which he had meant to say.  So sometimes, misstatements can [but usually do not] become standard language.
      
Some new words:
laser [from L.A.S.E.R.], Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation;
radar [from R.A.D.A.R.], RAdio Detection And Ranging;
snafu [from S.N.A.F.U.], Situation Normal All Fouled Up, a joke about the government/military.
