Word approximation

Word approximation Usage of words in an unconventional or inappropriate way (as in metonymy ), or usage of new but understandable words that are conventionally constructed (e.g., handshoes for gloves, time measure for the clock, and easily for simplify), contrasting with neologisms which are new words whose origins cannot be understood.
