I started reading Stephen King's novel "Under the dome" and discovered the word coaxable:
Andy was an extremely coaxable man, and eventually Claudette had gotten her way.
I cannot find a definition for this word in the online dictionary.
I found a definition for the verb coax:
- to influence or persuade (a person or animal) to do something by talking in a gentle and friendly way
- to get (something) by talking in a gentle and friendly way
So my guess is that the author meant that Andy is easily coaxed by Claudette.
Does this word exists or did the author invent it? If it exists, why is it not in the dictionary?
Is my understanding of the meaning correct?
