Dickens Loved to Coin New Words

From a post on The Oxford Dictionary blog:

It's hard to believe that Dickens was born 200 years ago --February 7, 1812. His birth name: Charles John Huffman Dickens.

"Claire Tomalin, who wrote a biography of the novelist, wonders what he would make of the 21st century."
