    Do you think only the particular poem?

    I don’t think it’s abundant of neologisms. I did find only some words (ohromna, tvor, ozvěna, zář, touha…) comming from Jungmann which were considered neologisms at that time, but now they are an integral part of the standard Czech.

    Some of the words for colours that he uses in this particular poem are supposed to be neologisms.

    Well, the difficult part is to know what was a neologism in Mácha's days which is about 150 years ago 8)
