Linguistic purism

Groups concerned with protecting their culture as reflected in its language may attempt to prevent use of terms which become widely known from some foreign language. Artificial attempts are made to generate new words and exclude or even prohibit use of borrowed foreign words or their derivatives. This could lead to isolation and technological backwardness. It also could severely limit communication with persons or groups outside the speaker's (or writer's) culture.
