Did I just coin a word? Recommendaction


I was working on my Technology Preview Strategy (TPS) Report, and I wanted to recommend some actions to take based on the feedback that we have received from technology preview project participants. I couldn’t decide between entitling the section of the report as RECOMMENDATIONS or ACTIONS. I then considered RECOMMENDACTIONS.

recommendaction (noun) [rek-uh-men-dak-shuh n]

  1. a recommendation for an action to be taken
  2. advice on a step to be performed

I googled this sequence of letters but didn’t see any previous use of the word. Have I just invented a word? Have you seen this word before?

Etymology is alive in the lab.
