The creation of information technology has led to certain changes in Russian language. Today it is not a language, not a society without culture influence on the Internet, and the Internet itself and the processes occurring in it have an impact on society, language, culture and many areas of our lives. Correspondence through the media and via e-mail, chat rooms and blogs – all this affects the Russian language. There is a change of values – computer education is more valuable language, is therefore considered particularly chic communicate simplified language, contrary to the norms of everyday communication. All this greatly affects the language situation and requires serious linguistic research. It is possible that we are talking about the formation of a new style in Russian – style Internet communication. The features of Internet communication written pronunciation, hyper-intertextuality, and spontaneity. This qualitatively new feature is its style and spontaneity, despite written reproduction. In this paper, we consider the word-formation processes occurring in the network, some of which received almost second life in the Internet communication: word composition, blends, abbreviation, reverse word formation, reduction and so on.
