Abstract:Technology and the English language have crossed paths over the past thirty years, in particular the internet as the latest IT development being the site of unprecedented language play and creativity. Amid a high-tech revolution, new linguistic varieties are born of parents of modern technology, Romanian making no exception. In this paper we explore the effects of a novel theoretical word formation model which draws on basic principles of cross-linguistic denomination that may contribute to the (re)formation of the mainstream lexis in the context of a highly technologically- influenced semiotic situation. In focus are lexical coinages, blending, lexical and semantic calques, prefixes, suffixes and other compounds.
Key words:internet linguistic variety, internet lexicography, cross-linguistic model, word formation, meaning extension, blending, lexical/semantic calques, internet prefixes, internet suffixes
