A habit that conlangers coin words personally in languages except their own conlangs, especially in their mother tongue. It is an often-observed habit among conlangers. The most common act among conlangers is to coin original terms for parts of speech or grammar. E.g. Arka has a word, caser (格詞kakushi in Japanese) which expresses a case of a noun to a verb, but caser and 格詞 are just a Seren’s coinage. It is of course to name the concept “pea” with Arka in Arka, but it is not of course to coin caser or 格詞 without translating “pea” into existing words like preposition or 前置詞 (zenchishi). It is an example of a coinagemania.
