What makes a word “real”?

Fascinating talk about language. Have a watch of this TEDx UofM talk, What makes a word “real”? Worth a watch. In this talk, you will learn: Adorkable = Adorable + Dork

Disclosure: I secretly LOVE languages use by people. My primary and high school English & Chinese Languages teachers may strong disagree! :)
