This thesis deals with the Croatian gaming language with special concern for the semantic and lexicographic description. The first section of this thesis depicts an overview of the most important aspects of the gaming culture, subsequently providing an outline of the word-forming models and processes of adopting anglicisms into the Croatian gaming language. Furthermore, this thesis deals with semantic loanwords, which is to say new meanings of words which are already a part of Croatian standard language, followed by a description of lexico-semantic relations observed in the body of work researched. The final chapter comprises the Croatian gaming dictionary with 303 entries. Lexical entries consist of a single or multi-word entry, etymological information, definition and examples from the assembled body of work. Examples were adopted from various Internet sources and printed publications.
