English-speaking Astrological Discourse as a Part of Esoteric Discourse and its Nominations

Olga G. Sapova, Liliya Stoikovich

Abstract


Article is devoted to some aspects of an English-speaking astrological discourse (linguistic, cognitive) and to its studying prospects. The objective of this article is to describe nominative tools of esoteric discourse from the point of view of its etymology, semantics and word – formation. In this article the etymological analysis of original and adopted nominations of esoteric discourse is given. It has been concluded that archaic words are coming into use together with reviving kinds of esoteric practices and a keen interest of a modern person. The author does an attempt to define a place of an astrological discourse among other discourse types, its ratio with esoteric and predictive discourses, considers its features, components, participants and their relationship.
