Summary/Abstract: The subject of the article are semantic neologisms present in paragliders’ sociolect, which is an example of new environmental variation of the Polish language. The author analysed noun semantic neologisms, which result from metaphorical use of the words in general language. Many of the described names one can recognize as metaphors yet stabilized, which are often the only defi nitions for objects and phenomenons. In case of some words, one can notice that the metaphorical process has not fi nished yet and can observe its transitory stage which precedes a complete record of a new meaning. Trans. A. Gierba
