Abstract | Full Text

This article deals with the whole set of theoretical problems connected with the classification principles of abbreviated words in the Russian language. The subject of the analysis was the abbreviations-neologisms motivated by borrowings (such as скейт ← скейтборд). The author shows that words like скейт are included in formal-semantic relationships with other lexical units, which makes them full-fledged elements of the Russian word-formation system. The conclusion of the study is based on a comprehensive study of the continuous samples of abbreviations from two dictionaries of the neologisms of the 21st century. As a result of the linguistic material analysis, three productive classes of the analyzed type abbreviations are established in the article, according to with reduced beginning (байк ← аквабайк), end (боулинг ← боулинг-клуб) and middle (Инет ← Интернет) components.
