Resumé

This article shows how people dynamically make sense of new words in social encounters, which is an unorthodox perspective on neologism. The article relies on inductive analysis of a case study of mundane conversation, in which a new term is introduced. The data is collected following the integrational principle of first-order perspective (Harris 1996, Davis 2001). Following Vygotsky (1978), Wertch & Stone (1978), and Gutiérrez (2008) this article will argue that the intersubjective sense-making process of the new word can be viewed as social microgenesis, thus showing aspects of reflection. This leads to a discussion of the relation between social microgenesis and ‘knowing’ the word (i.e. conventionalization), and thus the relation between first-order languaging and second-order language construct (Thibault 2011).
