Ayn Rand's Continuing Influence on our Language

This summer my AP students had to read The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand and The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell. Recently, one of my Ap students wrote in his journal:

"This weekend I was completely Dominiqued. In case I haven't told you what this means, it is from the Fountainhead. Dominique gets raped but she likes it and kinda wants it. When you get completely crushed but its kind of fun you are Dominiqued. As a side note, when you get completely and utterly screwed it is called Emillioed, and when you are performing the action of Dominiquing someone, you are Roarking them."
