"Looking For New Words Added in the Past Century"

The ADS journal, "American Speech", has had an "Among the New Words"
section for a long time, maybe a century or close to it. John Algeo's
book "Fifty Years among the New Words" (1991) is a usable index of these
words, with dates, 1941-1991.

I think there are other books somewhat along this line. Any reference
librarian might know much better.
