Query:   Dear Linguists, currently I'm working at my thesis devoted to neologisms
(and to the changing role of derivational affixes in particular). Neologisms
- is the material I'm working with. But though it is possible to find new
slang words and words coined and used in the media, I have difficulties
with neologisms that firstly appear in modern literature. Could you please
recommend me any on-line resources on this subject, any authors I
should pay my attention at, or any other relevant information.

Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.
