a word considered

Broadly defined, barbarism refers to an incorrect use of language. More specifically, a barbarism is a word considered "improper" because it combines elements from different languages. Adjective: barbarous. Also known as barbarolexis. 

"The term 'barbarism' is associated with unintelligibility, lack of understanding, and mis- or noncommunication. These associations can also be extracted from the etymology of barbarian: in ancient Greek, the word barbaros imitates the incomprehensible sounds of the language of foreign peoples, sounding like 'bar bar.' The foreign sound of the other is dismissed as noise and therefore as not worth engaging. . . . Those tagged as 'barbarians' cannot speak out and question their barbarian status because their language is not even understood or deemed worthy of understanding." (Maria Boletsi, Barbarism and Its Discontents. Stanford University Press, 2013)
