Abstract: The article proposes an algorithmic procedure for searching inflexion paradigms of new nouns. The material of the proposed research are more than 5000 nouns of the language of the media and communication (2006 – 2016 years). The procedure involves the regular interaction between a specialist and a computer. Variants of paradigms are offered by a computer, the decision in choosing the paradigms of new nouns is rendered by the lexicographer. The basic resource for the procedure is “Grammar Dictionary of the Ukrainian Literary Language. Inflexion”. Special optimization formal features of basic and new words also are used. The procedure uses the results of word-formation analysis of new words.

The procedure compares the finite parts of new and basic nouns. There are two comparison results: 1) a coincidence with an integer word from the dictionary, 2) a coincidence with a combination of letters. The strategy of the following steps of the procedure depends from these results .The work of the algorithm is shown on new nouns with the final letters г (115 nouns) and a (761 nouns). As a result of the procedure, for all new nouns, their inflexion paradigm was found.

In general, proposed in the article, the methodology with the interface mode “expert – computer – Internet – expert” proved to be effective for the search of inflexion paradigms of new nouns. According to our research, we can state that the inflexion system of the Ukrainian is stable and sufficient for the perception and assimilation of the new words.

Keywords: inflexion, inflexion paradigm, innovation, automatic text processing system, model, algorithm.
