An Academic Look at Boomer

Boomer is a neologism. A neologism is a newly coined word or phrase that has recently come into use or has been created to describe a new concept, idea, or phenomenon. Neologisms can be created in any language and can take different forms, such as:
  • A new meaning for an existing word (e.g., boomer, sick, tweet, viral).
  • A completely new word (e.g., fomo, selfie, emoji).
  • A new combination of existing words, or words with prefixes or suffixes (e.g., soyboy, digital detox, situationship, oversharers, antifragile).
Neologisms are often the result of changes in technology, culture, or social norms, and they can be found in fields such as science, technology, politics, and popular culture. Some neologisms become widely used and enter mainstream vocabulary, while others remain obscure or limited to specific communities or contexts.
