This is usually a word the writer just made up, but is occasionally a real obscure, archaic, or obsolete word; for instance, 400 years before we had computers, we had ''email'', which is a raised or embossed image pressed into metal, and "unfriend", which meant exactly what it does today (just at the tavern rather than facebook).
