However, most of the words that get invented already have perfectly
acceptable synonyms - it's just that the authors who make up the words
don't know them.

For instance, can you think of existing, 'real' words which describe the

downsizing
outsourcing
empower
etc. etc.

Answers on a postcard please ;-)
