Life cycle - from an artificial word to archaism

At the beginning there is often a Logatom. As such or also Pseudo word denotes a meaningless utterance that sounds similar to the vocabulary of a certain language. If this logatom is created consciously and given a meaning, one speaks of a Made-up word. If this word creation spreads and becomes established in the vocabulary, it will eventually become neologism and is a new word in the dictionary. If the usage decreases in the course of time, the word falls more and more into oblivion and in the last stage it becomes archaism - an outdated term on the verge of extinction.
