I looked through the Data Model for Lexemes.
Began playing around and looking at some of the existing data. Then I
wondered about word origins.

Example:
"Neighborhood Electric Vehicle" is a phrase first coined in the 1970's.
The earliest specific reference for this phrase is in the 1978 California
Penal Code which could be pointed to as a reference.

Is there are use case for Etymology with Lexemes ?
Specifically, not just the origin of the word pointing to a previous
word...through use of the existing P5191 derived from
<https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Property:P5191> property, but when a new
phrase is actually introduced to the world, typically because of a Fad,
Technology, etc.

How would the year "1978" and the reference work "California Penal Code" be
utilized for the earliest known date of usage for a phrase ?
