Abstract: The article sets out to discuss the peculiarities of Internet English lexical and morphological deviations, that is, the Internet-style creative activity and its differences from Standard English, together with the main factors conditioning specific alterations. The analytical method of the paper is based on the exploratory model established by William Croft (Croft 2005), who views language as a unity of components with their representative aspects, and sees morphology in the light of analytical ideas developed by Martin Haspelmath (Haspelmath 2002).
