Summary/Abstract: From March 2020, an unprecedented period began in the lives of all of us, which put our adaptability, work practices, learning and teaching habits, and even our language use to the test. One of the strict restrictive measures introduced following the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic was the regulation on immediate transition to online work practice and education. The current situation and work schedule significantly transformed the previous practices: it changed not only interpersonal relationships but also our speaking habits due to the difficulties and interruptions of technical communication, starting from the development of better sound formation and articulation to the use of new expressions, vocabulary units with altered meanings, or lexicalelements never heard before. Our aim is to take stock of some of these newly developed features.
