Summary/Abstract: The article deals with new verbal nouns in Bulgarian language, which are formed with the suffix -ne (-не). Observations were made on word formation and lexical semantics of new verbal nouns. Study finds that most of new verbal nouns are motivated by new verbs, but some of them are motivated by names and these verbal names are formed with complex suffixes. The new names with suffixes -tsia (-ция) and -ne (-не) are in competition. Neologisms with suffix -ne and borrowings from English ending in -ing are also in competition. Some of neologisms with suffix -ne appear before the verbs. Most of neologisms with suffix -ne are much more usable than the verbs. Neologisms with suffix -ne are used as terms.
