because yahoo became an english everyday word. Yahoo = a bestial person.

That is so amusing. My Mum uses that on the kids when they're being too rambunctious.
Has anyone here made up their own words?

Don't most of us every now and then?
Doesn't that just happen naturally?

Shakespeare made up many new words

YAHOO is a backronym
  means they knew the word, liked it and then made
   Yet another hierarchical officious oracle to match the letters.
Little Bits of History A short essay on something that happened on any day.

Imperfect Reason My thoughts, such as they are.

I think I read some place that Shakespeare gav us three-thousand-and-some-odd words.
We still use some of them even now.

Don't forget the use of Yahoo in Gulliver's Travels.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yahoo_(Gulliver's_Travels)

We didn't! *lol*
I don't make up my own words usually, but I needed a better word for Captain Jack walking down the beach because in my head he wasn't wobbly of weaving down the beach, so, I thought and thought to myself what I could use as the word Weably popped into my head. I am gonna use it when the right situation comes up. I think its charming.

I don't know. I don't think anything was really document all that well in the Elizabethian Era.
