Examples

pseudo-anglicism (plural pseudo-anglicisms)

  1. A word in a language other than English that has an English appearance but is not current in English itself. This may be, for example, because the word was borrowed from a neologism that never entered English common use, or because it was independently derived from an English word, or because it was deliberately coined to resemble English.
