Beisenova Zhainagul, Aisada K. Utanova, Gulnaz S. Imangalieva


This article describes specific nature of discipline-specific term motivation in various languages. However, the issue on evolution and development tendencies of special veterinary vocabulary in the Russian and Kazakh languages has not been a subject of special researches and requires scientific description and learning. Veterinary terminology is a set of terms for all directions of the discipline, which conform to the necessary requirements specified to terms. Term motivation is directly analyzed in the article on examples of terms-zoonoses which are characteristic of epizootologic terminology as a branch of veterinary terminology. The cognitive aspect of this terminology presents the peculiarities of system development of special veterinary knowledge that have been formed continuously under the influence of internal and external socio-economic factors. The paper demonstrates the distinctions between the languages caused by distinction of occidental and oriental cultures on examples of untranslatable terms-zoonoses of the Russian and Kazakh languages.
