New solid compounds with -bubble (English)
Abstract [sv]

Den här är en korpusbaserad studie över sammansättningar med efterledet -bubbla under 2000–2014. Följande ord har studerats ingående: bostadsbubbla, lånebubbla, finansbubbla, aktiebubbla, småbolagsbubbla, husbubbla, lönebubbla och hyresbubbla. Studien har funnit att sammansättningarna är etablerade, att metaforiken bubbla är konventionaliserad att sammansättningarna används i en ekonomisk diskurs och mer allmänt. Studien för även en vidare diskussion kring nyord och metaforik och föreslår en offentlig konversation med ekonomijournalister och språkforskare. 

Abstract [en]

This is a corpus-based study of compound words with the modifier -bubble in texts from 2000 to 2014. The following compound words were studied closely: housing bubble, credit bubble, the financial bubble, the stock bubble, small cap bubble, real estate bubble, salary bubble and the rental bubble. Results indicate that these compound words are established, that the metaphor bubble is conventionalized, and that the compound words are used both in economic discourse and more generally. Further, new words and metaphors are discussed. A public conversation with financial journalists and linguists is suggested.
