"Already, on the walk from the station, the May sunshine had made him feel dirty and etiolated, a creature of indoors, with the sooty dust of London in the pores of his skin." George Orwell, 1984

djilk commented on the word cogredience
As best I can tell this is a neologism coined by Alfred North Whitehead; but it did not gain traction, probably because the theory in which it is used also did not.

djilk commented on the word entrepreneurialism
Unfortunately, people have been using this word to mean entrepreneurship, which is already a perfectly good word. Entrepreneurialism (along with entrepreneurism, which I think is inferior) could describe that set of beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors that attend one who is entrepreneurial, but has nothing to do with the specifics of starting a business or organization.
