Word formation process
« on: November 18, 2018, 11:50:24 PM »
Hey guys,

so I have to find different word formation processes in the following news article:



They call it Hallyu, the Korean wave: the idea that South Korean pop culture has grown in prominence to become a major driver of global culture, seen in everything from Korean dramas on Netflix to Korean skincare regimens dominating the cosmetics industry to delicious Korean tacos on your favorite local menu.
And at the heart of Hallyu is the ever-growing popularity of K-pop Hallyu has been building for two decades, but K-pop in particular has become increasingly visible to global audiences in the past five to 10 years.
South Korean artists have hit the Billboard Hot 100 chart at least eight times since the Wonder Girls first cracked it in 2009 with their crossover hit “Nobody” — released in four different languages, including English — and the export of K-pop has ballooned South Korea’s music industry to an impressive $5 billion industry.
Now, with South Korea hosting the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang at a moment of extremely heightened geopolitical tensions, K-pop has taken on a whole new kind of sociopolitical significance, as South Korea proudly displays its best-known export before the world.




I was only able to find following ones : Compounds: Skincare, everything, billboard, crossover, ever-growing, best-known , billboard hot 100 chart, nobody

Clipping : pop ( popular – back clipping)


I am not able to find any blendings, coinage, zero derivation, initialism and so on  :-\ can someone please help me?

Welcome to the forum. However, we will not do homework for you.

Do you understand what those terms mean? There aren't necessarily any really clear examples of all of them, but maybe you can find examples that might count and argue your case. If the assignment requires you find examples for all but only in that text, that seems like the best option to me.
