Polisemia dei nuovi anglo-americanismi nella lingua russa contemporanea
The article deals with the active development of polysemy that characterizes the integration of the neologisms of the English language origin into Russian. Their new meanings are usually the result of the semantic shift based on metaphor or metonymy along with the appearance of secondary borrowings. The research has been based on a corpus of modern mass media texts in the Russian language as well as on the analysis of the most recent lexicographic sources. The paper describes the peculiarities of semantic development of the newest anglicisms quoting numerous examples of neosemy many of which have not yet been registered in dictionaries.
