Most of the previous research on musical terminology were confined to classical music. In the twenty-first century, it is necessary to separate the specific electronic music terminology. The individual discourse community of electronic music has two layers, which are closly connected to each other. These layers are the musicians, and the people who are connected to this culture and scene, so called „fans“. Both of their language using have enormous effects on the development of terminology. Some electronic music dictionaries are available in English and other more widely spoken languages (e.g. German), but not in smaller languages, like Hungarian. This is why these languages accept the incoming terms from English. But at the same time, the incoming process causes some problems in adopting new terms to the language. Therefore, the members of this discourse community do not use the termonology consistently, which is attributable to the incomplete terminological norm. So this norm must be elaborated by an up-dated and prominent dictionary also in smaller languages.
The written sources of this termonology are analysed on different discourse channels and platforms in my research. These are the thematic texts; multimodal texts; and the Internet platforms, as web-sites, blogs, forums and social networks. In the presentation, the different examples will show e.g. the effects of the Internet on language using (web 2.0 and its influences), the meanings of multimodal texts and the virtual mask of cyber space etc.
