Summary/Abstract: The aim of the paper is to present a few newest neosemanticisms in Polish. The bibliography on semantic innovations in Polish is already quire rich, but new constructions appear in the language all the time; thus, the constant research in the field is a necessity. The present paper concentrates on the analysis of the following words: alejka, bukiet, sponsor and tester. The old meanings of the words are briefly described (on the basis of the monolingual Polish dictionary Uniwersalny słownik języka polskiego) and then new meanings are analyzed, with the illustration of quotations from the National Corpus of Polish.
