Re: What is the newest word in your conlang?

in my triple S philosophical language (1 Sound=1 Sense=1 Sign) each sign is a lexeme and there is no difference between words and texts... so no more new lexeme-word since forty years... last word I work on is a 2D 17² signs folk name of the language I found back for adapting it in 3D rhizome form.....
