Русские стяженные номинации с суффиксом –к(а) в социолингвистическом аспекте: от коммуналки к боевке

This article explores the behavior of nouns with a -k- affix or derivative affixes used by adult and adolescent native speakers. Both predominant and marginal variants of “condensate” reference correlation are traced based on the internet usage data survey and analysis. The article separates poly referential and mono referential lexems. It analyses comprehension of ka-nouns depending on their context of use.  

Internet usage allows to distinguish five mono referential nouns (ochka - ‘full-time education’, nastolka - ‘board game’, lichka - ‘private message’, vkusnyashka - ‘delicious food’, palyonka - ‘fake vodka’)  from 32 others lexemes.  

A dominant value is derived for each poly referential unit. The usage of the above word meanings is quantitatively predominant. The usage of the dominant meanings is a convolution of set expressions that are drawn towards termhood and  idiomaticness.
