The article analyzes neologisms of the military sphere, functioning in mass media and Internet communication within the period of the armed struggle in Ukraine, starting from 2014 up to 2022. The vast majority of such units are an effective tool of information warfare, as they are stylistically marked. They are the creative formations and serve to express the intentions of the author: to give an assessment to certain persons and phenomena, to express an attitude towards them, to clarify the role and place of a phenomenon, event or person in the life of the country and the world community. The main sources of replenishment of the new military vocabulary being analyzed in the paper are the following: word formation, new borrowings and the actualized words. Considerable attention is paid in the article to the ways of word formation of military neologisms, among which the author singles out productive (semantic derivation, suffix method, abbreviation, composition, word-composition) and unproductive (prefix method, telescoping, blending) ones.
