Well, you could always write a book or a screenplay, and use this new word of yours in such charming ways that it would catch on and eventually make it to the dictionaries. However, even Mike Myers's 'babelicious' and 'shagadelic' still appear only in dictionaries of slang, I think. So, I would recommend another way, which is shorter and far simpler: Use it as a domain name on the Internet! If the word is indeed a novelty, you should be able to get the .com version. Throw in .net, .org, .biz, etc. in proportion to your ambition. Please tell us, what is this new word of yous? (Better buy it first, though.)
: I believe I have coined a new word based on a word in good standing by adding a modifying prefix letter. The word in good standing appears in many dictionaries, but the modification can't be found anywhere.
: Is there any way I can claim "title" to this new word?
