A colleague of mine recently used the word "consolidarity" in a conversation the other day (never minding that it is actually not a word). I thought it was worthy of a submission to Webster's. The definition I proposed when I tweeted about it was the following:
Consolidate + Solidarity = Consolidarity.

The quintessential example of the word would be when parents both agree to have their kids share a room. Where else could you use the word?

    Haha, the other day my mom and I were in an argument and she used the word, I immediatly started laughing and the argument ended, follwed by another one about if it was a word or not, she bet me fifty dollars it was one. She lost.

    Here is the context that I used the word consolidarity. I work in a grocery store and do a little marketing when I introduce new products. More often than not, I have to move products around and due to the size of the product and shelf space it becomes a little difficult to keep like products together or like brands together. I asked a coworker what he thought about the rearrangement and was explaining my thought process out loud. I was telling him that the particular brand enjoyed consolidarity by being consolidated and had solidarity from the other brands of the same products. Definition to Websters: A marketing term where a brand consisting of different products that are marketed together and have solidarity by product type.
