ForLoop5,

No, words cannot be patented, only ideas and inventions can. In some cases words can be trademarked, showing a distinctive use of the word when applied to specific products or services.

Cheers,

If you come up with a unique word and provide a definition, you can publish that combination and copyright it for yourself as the holder of the rights.

As mentioned, you can trademark the use of a word, or a combination of words.

But the enforcement of the trademark requires lots of lawyers.

Also you have to trademark the word in every country, where you want to protect it.
