    Here are also some examples of coined words - http://alt-usage-english.org/excerpts/fxportma.html

    You should specify what types of coinages you need - there are lots of them! Carroll's Alice in the Wonderland is a treasury of coined words, in case you need some unique ones, invented by the author.

    Good luck
