Alina Gennadyevna Chernyshenko, Maksim Nikolaevich Latu


This paper presents the comparative analysis of the process of coining technical terms in the terminology of mediation and information technologies, some structural and semantic peculiarities of the technical terms are put into context and discussed. Mediation and IT terminologies were subjected to the Nuclear-Peripheral analysis as most of the crucial controversies in term translation are related to the shift of the original meaning of the terminological element that is the nucleus or misinterpretation of the meaning of a terminological element that represents the periphery in technical term structure. The qualitative method was used to reveal the statistics for the detected regularities and the distribution within the terminologies. This article addresses the need for research on specific characteristics of terminologies of fundamental and applied character for further elaboration of the principles for systematization and standardization of developing terminological systems.
