Abstract | Full Text

This article proposes the establishment of a variable called neologic value to determine the inclusion and censorship of neologisms in the general dictionary. In order to do so, the variable must pass the widespread condition in the use of neologisms and incorporate another variable such as denominative necessity. Calculating the value is the function of neologicity parameters established in the neology field, and the result is integrated in a neologicity escale proposed as lexicographic criteria to consider in the registry of neologisms. The proposal has been applied to ten neologisms of various sources not documented in the DRAE to show how this neologic value may contribute to its positive assessment for inclusion in the dictionary.
