The dictionary lists all new coinages, loan words borrowed from other languages, and words that have taken on new meaning (while retaining their original form) in the German language since 2000. The list of lemmata was established with the help of automatic frequency analysis, in which the statistical frequency of the occurrence of a word was a factor that determined whether that word would appear as an entry in the dictionary. Special lexicographic features of the dictionary entries include not only the definition of the neologism, the date of its first usage and the citation of numerous authentic documentations of its usage, but also diagrams illustrating the history of the usage of each neologism. The dictionary is comprised of data taken from the analysis of a language corpus from Leipzig University containing millions of entries.

  • Extensive lexicographical description of all neologisms that have been introduced into the German language since 2000
  • Based on the Leipziger language corpus of modern German containing millions of entries
  • Provides information such as the orthography, definition and citation of the first documented use of each neologism
  • Includes diagrams illustrating the frequency and history of use of each individual neologism
