Introduction. The emergence of the Internet and the creation of the body of texts of different national languages significantly simplified the preparatory, but extremely important for further deployment of the study stage. It is enough for the researcher to enter the corresponding word body into the search engine in order to obtain the full index of its own word forms in the nearest and extended contexts with the corresponding addressing. Creating an empirical research base in this way provides a minimum of effort and time to aggregate data, which at the same time will increase significantly. On one hand, it simplified and facilitated, but, on the other hand, it complicated the process of analysis and comprehension of such an amount of examples.

Purpose. Find out the capabilities of the search engine and the body of the language in the study of changing the semantics of words.

Methods. According to research material in the scientific studies, the following methods are used: descriptive (linguistic techniques of observation and generalization), component analysis method (including analysis of dictionary definitions), method of contextual analysis and method of comparative analysis.

Results. An important feature of the Internet as a linguistic source is the ability to directly refer to the contexts in which the use of the right word is recorded. This is important for the transition from quantitative characteristics to qualitative, from the abstract invariant, represented in the quantitative coefficient of the word, to its semantic, stylistic and other variants. However, for today, unfortunately, search engines need to be improved, since it is not known how to streamline the search results, it would be nice if the filters of what we are looking for would work. Or linguists need to create their own, specialized search engines, oriented to the fulfillment of scientific tasks.

Originality. The variants of the use of search engines GOOGLE, META, SHUKALKA, the Body of texts of the Ukrainian language on the portal and the buildings of Slavic languages or research purposes are illustrated by the example of semantic innovations. As a result, the format of the database of neosemanticisms is proposed.Conclusion. Перспективу подальших наукових пошуків убачаємо в дослідженні функціонального потенціоналу семантичних інновацій.

Conclusion. The prospect of further scientific research is seen in the study of the functional potential of semantic innovations.
