Where do new words come from?

As I'm just about to give a talk entitled 'Do you Speak 2018? Aspects of Contemporary English' at Poland IATEFL, I thought I'd post this piece that I wrote some time back for onestopenglish about where new words come from. It gives an overview of the sources of new words and is something you can use in class maybe to introduce the topic of new language and/or contemporary English.
