    what's that term?

    What is the term for a word that is coined by a writer? I am not thinking of "portmanteaux", but another word that specifically describes words that are made up especially for a poem or story, and sometimes make their way into the English language. It's on the tip of my tongue - please help!

    Neologisms? Morphemes?
