We attempt to describe the peculiarities of studying English neologisms and nonce words by means of a new research technique, offerd by modern information and communication technologies - open online dictionaries. We highlight debatable aspects of using these sources of linguistic data, including theoretical and practical issues of analyzing new words.
The author examines the problems connected with a too broad use of the term “law” in the contemporary language. Such discourse about law which has no clear limits is defined as Novdroit. This narrative destroys the language used by the lawyers and introduces a new ideology instead. Under the guise of political correctness this ideology perverts the original sense of the old words. Studying the polysemanticism of the term “law” in the contemporary discussions, the author draws that the ambivalence of “law” can easily be used in the political purposes to legitimate the existing authorities and their rules.
