Linguistics on Jeopardy - $800

In honor of the special Jeopardy tournament this week, I have decided to do a daily post with past Jeopardy clues related to language and linguistics.

The category: Nonce Words

The $800 clue: Akin to a dumpster diver, a freegan is an anticonsumerist who eats only what is this.

Hint: A nonce word is one that is created on the fly for a particular use and not likely to recur.
Answers and episode credits will be posted at the end of the week. There will be a special prize for the first ten people that submit the correct answer (question) each day all week.
