“Of all the words that exist in any language only a bare minority are pure, unadulterated, original roots. The majority are “coined” words, forms that have been in one way or another created, augmented, cut down, combined, and recombined to convey new needed meanings, The language mint is more than a mint; it is a great manufacturing center, where all sorts of productive activities go on unceasingly.”
Mario Pei
