Prominent linguists not only from Russia, but also from near and far abroad, took part in the International Round table organized by the Bulletin of the Moscow Region State University (e-journal). Among them: L.V. Ratsiburskaya (Nizhny Novgorod State University named after N.I. Lobachevsky), O.S. Issers (Omsk State University named after F.I. Dostoevsky), I.P. Zaitseva (Vitebsk State University named after P.M. Masherov, the Republic of Belarus), J. Sipko (Prešov University, Slovakia), M.V. Radchenko (the University of Zadar, Croatia), E.M. Markova (Moscow Region State University). The scientists raised the problems of word creation, especially the problems dealing with the word-formation of occasionalisms, as well as the word-derivation of anthroponyms and verbs. Besides, the issues of semantic novations and phraseological transformations characteristic for mass media editions were discussed. It is ascertained that many neologisms, occasionalisms, and transforms are replicated and popularized by mass media, thus penetrating into the consciousness and language of the speakers, acquiring the status of “solecisms” – the legalized linguistic liberties and deviations from the norm.

Key words

the language of mass media, language game, vocabulary, neologism, occasionalism, anthroponym, precedent text, evaluation-making, manipulation, verbal aggression, the Russian language, the Slavic languages
