Neo-speak

Consider the wide neo-range of neo-uses for the prefix "neo." Neo is so overused that you can bet will soon be replaced by neosomething.

neoconservatism
neoliberalism
neo-hippie
neoclassical economics
neo-idiot

Despite its overuse, neo has lots of room to spread through what will soon be referred to as the neocolloquial. You'll hear people saying things like, "I love my neojob," or "Global warming threaten to mess up the neoclimate."
