MARTINEZ-LARA, José Alejandro. The Neologisms Of The Bolivarian Revolution: Case Analysis Of The Digital Written Press Of The First Semester Of 2018. Logos [online]. 2019, vol.29, n.2, pp.304-325. ISSN 0716-7520.

In this work, descriptive qualitative, we study the neologisms (Cabré, 2006; Zacarías, 2017) of the Venezuelan political sphere. The objectives of this paper are i) to describe the neologisms of the Venezuelan political and economic sphere, and ii) to describe the most frequent lexical-genetic processes found in the corpus of analysis. The corpus of this study is composed of journalistic texts, extracted from the electronic portals of the Venezuelan newspapers: El Nacional and Últimas Noticias. The cases were recorded in lexicographic sheets and were subjected to the contrast analysis with a corpus of exclusion composed by i) lexicographic works, ii) glossaries of previous research on the topic and iii) the data base of neologisms of the Instituto Cervantes. The results indicate that the neologisms identified in the corpus are mostly formal and a case of semantic neologism.

Keywords : neologisms; lexicography; terminology; Venezuelan politics context.
