One of my pet hates, but no-one said that neologisms are unacceptable even if I'd scrub out my mouth with wire wool rather than use this one in real speech:


A person who creates productive ideas, a conceptualist

One who ideates; one who holds or generates an idea, or synthesizes a concept



"Ideation". I ask you. Mutter, mutter, grumble.
