I subscribe to an email list for graduates of Viable Paradise, a science-fiction writing workshop. On it, a writer described a science fictional concept (a sort of meshed human and computer brain), and asked if there were accepted or familiar terms for it in the genre.
The existence of the question itself is fascinating. I can’t think of another genre of fiction (counting SF and fantasy as one, that is), where it would even occur to writers to research the invented words of other writers. Certainly, genres have their own language and jargon: the procedurals of detective novels, the euphemisms of romance, the gadgets of technothrillers, the supernatural creatures of horror. But these words aren’t consciously invented by writers, generally; they are handed to them by the larger culture. In science fiction, though (and to a lesser extent in fantasy, which invents terms but also draws from mythology and folklore), it is considered normal — indeeed, exemplary — both to invent new terms to describe new ideas, and to borrow those terms and ideas from other writers.
