Abstract:     
Linguistic creativity is a manifestation of innovativeness. Investigating the diffusion of linguistic innovation requires an interdisciplinary approach, pooling competences from sciences humanistic, social, and strict (in particular mathematics and computational methods). The initial results will be presented of an empirical project analysing the social spread of neologisms in a microblogging site.
