Néologismes Économiques Dans La Presse Italienne D'Information Générale

The written press is a continuously evolving organism, playing an important part in spreading the linguistic patterns. It is the privileged support of innovation, because it presents accurate facts, takes over the innovations from the specialized language and meanwhile it creates new words out of the necessity of naming the new objects, concepts and phenomena, but even out of stylistic reason or out of their desire to captivate the readers. In the present paper we define our goal as being the identification and the description of neologisms present in the economic section of two Italian daily newspapers of general interest, Corriere della Sera and La Repubblica. This section defines itself through a great number of neologisms in comparison to the other sections. Some of them have immediate success and enter the common language, being immediately recorded in the dictionary; others are ephemeral, closely connected to certain events with no implications and that don't start another series of events.
