The French language, like all languages, is evolving continuously. Part of this evolution is the appearance of neologisms and the development of new meanings for existing words. Studying these neologisms from a morphological approach can allow for a deeper understanding of where French is coming from, as well as where it is headed. This study focuses specifically on acronyms, sigles, and terms from the scientific, technological and socio-political domains that emerged between 1998 and 2008.
