Abstract

The aim of this article is to present the phenomenon of word-formation hybrids characteristic
of the contemporary German language as visible in the language of fashion.
From the linguistic perspective, the phenomenon of combining native and non-native
language elements is interesting, as nowadays many language users tend to employ such
combinations more and more often. Firstly, the concepts of borrowing and integrated
and non-integrated foreign words were clarified. Further on, the focus was placed on
the term word-formation hybrid, as well as the issue of the language of fashion. Based
on the theoretical foundations, the corpus study was conducted in accordance with three
criteria: morphological, foreignlingual and semantic. Moreover, the spelling aspects
of word forming hybrids and the number of components comprising them were analysed.
