Scientists, individually and collectively, appear to be in the business of persuading others that the concepts they cherish are of significant import. Given the intrinsic link between concepts and terms, it can be argued that the more frequent a term, perhaps representing a concept, appears in the literature of a scientific community, the more acceptable it may be to that community. Scientists use neologisms, but rarely, and change the meaning of extant words - they create retronyms. Two case studies, the emergence of artificial intelligence and semiconductor physics, are presented in order to investigate some of the various linguistic processes through which the actual, potential or perceived genesis of a concept maybe communicated. Frequency analysis of full documents, abstracts and journal titles has been carried out so that these concepts, together with their changes, may be identified.
