Purpose: The research article is devoted to the structure, semantics, and functions of neologisms in the Kazakh language in the years of Independence. The article covers such issues as the process of emergence of new words in Kazakh language in the period of Independence and gives examples of neologisms and ways of their emergence.

Methodology: This was analytical-logical research based on content analysis.

Result: Neologisms are found in the most diverse areas of human activity and used to some extent in a wide variety of vocabulary. New names cover almost all spheres of human life. The neological “explosion” of the late 20th and early 21st centuries, peculiar to many post-Soviet states, including Kazakhstan, is determined by political, economic, social and cultural changes in society.       

Applications: This research can be used for the universities, teachers, and students.

Novelty/Originality: In this research, the model of the modern status and development tendencies of neologisms in the kazakh language is presented in a comprehensive and complete manner.
