Is there an authoritative source for new words and terms like, for example, an application (a computer program)? I am aware of http://slovotvir.org.ua, however words presented there quite often sound questionable (subjective), besides that many of them are still under discussion.

It seems that the NASU Institute of Ukrainian Language (see its official website (in Ukrainian)) would be the entity officially entitled to take care of incorporating new words and terms into the language.

They have published a dictionary of neologisms a few years ago.

  • A dictionary of neologisms, published a few years ago sounds a bit sad, don't you think?

  • @ata_zh, in the world of Internet and electronic communications publishing on papers is doomed to look slow and outdated, but that's what paper publishing is. Consider it a milestone mark :-)

  • what keeps NASU from making electronic dictionaries?

  • @ata_zh I have no idea. You can try contacting them and persuading to consider this option :-) since we don't write books by hand anymore, there should be some electronic sources they could put online, I suppose.
