The issue of neologisms had come to the fore. Words are continually evolving and new notions are formed, and a new notion demands a new word. This is based on the fact that words do not have meaning in isolation. In general, the meaning of the word is related to the meaning of other words in ways that may be simple or complex on old and existing ones to make meaning. Language as any other area of human development and ehavior can be affected by disability. People who suffer from delayed language development or language disorder can influence the creation of new words. This goes to agree with the language ehavior of some stroke patients. People who suffered a stroke or even a small brain hemorrhage can create new words. It has also become obvious that the most productive way of extending our vocabulary and word view is creating new words out of the parts of old ones. So, through neologisms our word view and vocabulary are extended. This extension creates variety which is the spice of interest. Once we have learned the power of prefix, we can use it to coin new words and achieve interesting, humorous, dramatic or literary effects.
