I'm inclined to agree with Fred Shapiro about the value of searching for
evidence of neologisms on Nexis.  I've been doing that for The Barnhart
Dictionary Companion for nearly 16 years.  However, I have run across
terms (e.g. yumptious) that were not as widely used in Nexis documents as
on WWW sites.  I believe, and I am sure Fred knows better than I, that
there is great value to be gleaned from www.
