Summary/Abstract: The concept of ICT has become the central theme that attracts the attention of researchers from various disciplines. All agree that ICTs are now essential to the development in Africa. Among these ICTs, the Internet appears to be the technology that conveys the most hope. The progress of the Internet has led to the emergence of a new society: the information society. The development of this society implies for all African people an agenda of linguistic adjustment. Indeed, African languages, through their exogenous contributions, lead to adjusting endogenous efforts towards sustainable development. All in all, in this current context marked by the intensive use of mother tongues in many activities, the contribution of the Internet cannot ignore these languages. However, it should be recognized that Ivorian languages in general and Agniin particular, can only claim the status of mediums for the use of the Internet if they are instrumentalized, i. e. modernized with the contribution of terminology capable of naming this computer tool. This analysis aims to explore the ability of the Agni language to identify new realities in the Internet domain.
