Sammanfattning: The purpose of this essay is to examine which of new words presented in Nyordslistan are established in the language since 2012. Source text for this essay are seven Nyordslista published between 2012 and 2018. The study analyses the frequency of the new words in newspapers and on Twitter using two databases, Mediearkivet and Korp.

The rest of the established new words are still established but not in both forums. Common words contain 38 and 22 new words respectively. The biggest category is rare words; more than 50% words from each Nyordslista end up being rare and not established. Dead words is a small category that contains few words from Nyordslista 2012 to 2014 (with one word from 2015).  It’s determined in the theory chapter that frequency, distribution and meta signals are of great importance for determine the degree of establishment of the new word.
