Abstract: The article is concerned with presenting financial lexis from the vantage point of sociolinguistics and lexicography. The research described dissects financial lexis and aims to prove that it shares the characteristics of standard language. The article will strive to demonstrate that financial language displays stylistic variation and a multitude of morphological structures. Additionally, the author will endeavour to demonstrate that financial language is highly metaphorical. Theoretical assumptions will be amply supported by citational corroborations.
Keywords: financial language, slang, jargon, metaphor, variation
