Abstract

The purpose of this investigation is to analyze the neologisms of the 2019 coronavirus infection period

English speakers. The authors of the article pay special attention to the field of application of covid
vocabulary and the circumstances of coronavirus infection that have affected the entire world
community. The scientific novelty of the research lies in the systematization of neologisms during the
pandemic and in identifying its influence on the expansion of the lexical stock of the English-speaking
community. The result of the investigation is the creation of an educational module for students of
pedagogical institutes, aimed at studying neologisms that refer to language markers and in turns
reflect the linguistic picture of the world of native English speakers during the pandemic period.
