Nowadays neologisms are formed to meet the needs of a technologically fast- forward oriented society. So while a blog is a “web log” (that is, a web site that can contain any type of data entries, often in the form of a diary), an “edublog” is an “educational blog” (that is, a web site that has a didactic aim – remember that the word “education” is a false friend, as it means “istruzione” in English, and not “educazione/buone maniere”). Similarly, the neologism “edutainment”, formed by the two words “education” and “entertainment”, refers to computer games that are designed to be educational and entertaining at the same time.
The following wordlist is of course not complete, but I hope it will be useful.
