English Wikipedia has an article on
nonce words.

A nonce word is a word invented for a single occasion, and otherwise not understood as a word. In Toki Pona, several of these have been used in art, given glyphs in certain writing systems (chiefly sitelen pona), and recorded in dictionaries, but remain used more as pieces of community culture than as words proper.
