Description The paper aims to present main findings in circulation of a neologism bol(l)os(-s/-se) that we observe from 2006 throughout questionaries, interviews, occurrencies in medias and in dictionaries in order to propose a model of "neologism life". It begins as a hapax that could be found by anachronic researching, and ends as an entry in dictionary of general language, passing by a stage of "identitary word" for youth.
