Summary/Abstract: This article aims at a critical analysis and systematization of the current theories on nonce formation. To this end, a number of theoretical issues are addressed, such as the nature of the term nonce formation, its definitions proposed in the subject literature, the perspectives on the evaluation of its formal novelty as well as the meaning of the morphological and semantic structure for the identification of nonce formation. Individual sections of the article point to terminological difficulties and inconsistencies in the approaches of quoted researchers. The last section constitutes a summary of the discussion and includes a proposal of combining the enumerated research approaches in such a way as to receive a coherent definition of nonce formation.
