Lexiconoclasm is a neologism that is birthed from Lexicon and iconoclasm. Lexiconoclasm is a new figure of speech, a trope where a word can have the same or different spellings and is used to connote two or more shades of meaning. Examples of lexiconoclasm are WATCH and TEAR. Watch can mean a physical apparatus to look at the time or it also can mean to look. Similarly tear can mean tears from the eye or it also can mean something that is torn. Other examples are Sea and See, be and bee.
