New words are constantly entering the lexicon to describe new concepts and technologies and what they mean to us. Conversely, older words continually fall out of use as they decrease in cultural significance. Considering the influence digital technology has had on society, it is not surprising then that lexicographers have found that science and technology are by far the most prolific sources of neologisms in recent times (Crystal 2002; Knowles & Elliot 1997; Van Dyke 1992; Gozzi 1990).

The study of new words in present-day American English displays new developments in contemporary American culture. 3)Another generalization is that present-day American culture is obsessed with the love of the new, it may be described as the culture of neophiliacs(любителі, шанувальники нового). American mass media is constantly promoting the latest, new products, and American economy is geared to producing soon-to-be obsolete fashionable consumer goods.

Values and people are changing and many people are afraid of these changes. American women work more now, but still do not have the same opportunities for equal salaries and career as men. The 1950s was the last decade of calm for this country. It was a problem free time when life was predictable. Since that time there have been many changes in the country. Americans are getting older and the number of senior citizens increases. They often find that they have two jobs now: taking care of the house and the children and working at the office. Since 1960s the number of single-parent families increased. Americans bring up their children to be independent.

"New Words and a Changing American Culture" uses the new words generated by American culture from 1961 and 1986 to describe culture changes and discuss concerns raised by the new words themselves. The new words reveal a culture preoccupied with technology, but increasingly mystified by it and worried about its "ripple effects". The economy often behaved in "counterintuitive" and "counterproductive" ways, producing "stagflation" and hurting the "bottom line". Communication became more deceptive, as "hardball" players would try to "psych you out" with new forms of "doublespeak", such as "bureacratese", or "computerese". Protests came from the "New Left" and the "New Light", and negative stereotypes proliferated, from the "hippies" of the '60's to the "airheads" and "yuppies" of the '80's. Through all of this people tried to avoid an "identity crisis", but perhaps they only postponed it to a "midlife crisis".
