All I find on Usenet is two Spanish posts. Khemehekis (talk) 04:11, 3 March 2018 (UTC)
I paged through the Google Books and Scholar hits, which were all irrelevant. The only Usenet hits are irrelevant (a different word in a different language), as Khemehekis says. And there's nothing on Issuu. In fact, when I search for this term + "gender", I see fewer than a hundred raw Google web hits when I page through to the end. This looks like a candidate for WT:LOP. Someone should add the Spanish word, though. - -sche (discuss) 04:53, 3 March 2018 (UTC)
It seems too commonly used to be a protologism. The word is like sonimod above: lots of hits on the Internet, but apparently none in durably archived sources. Khemehekis (talk) 01:58, 5 March 2018 (UTC)


Wilfred Attwood Beardsley, Infinitive Constructions in Old Spanish (1921), page 177, explains that in Spanish this is an inflected form of enbiar, an Old Spanish form (possibly attested as an obsolete Spanish form) of enviar.
