Dissertation Abstract:

The dissertation researches the aspects of the English vocabulary
development processes in the sphere of new computer technologies. The
primary supposition of the computer and technology-related word-stock
terminological nature lead us into the study of terminology as a specific
lexical layer. The dual systematization character of terminology determined
the analysis of both linguistic (morphological and semantic) and external
(categorical) paradigmatic parameters of computer terminology of the
English language.

Linguistically the development of English computer terminology acquires an
ambivalent character. Primarily, the sources of English computer vocabulary
root in the conventional word-formation types, such as affixation,
abbreviation and acronymy, telescopy, etc and semantic derivation. However,
according to our research results, the enrichment process of the computer
terminology of English incorporates the emergence of the word-formation
ways and means, authentic for the given lexical sub-system. Moreover, the
progress of terminological system in the new computer technology sphere
determines the new conceptual approach to the 'word-formation element'
notion. Our research results actualize the possibility to derive a unique
element of word structure, designated as a false morpheme, the chief
distinctive feature of the given unit being its freelance motivation.

The categorical paradigmatic parameters of English computer terminology are
featured from the following perspectives: the terminological
(lexico-semantic) perception of basic metaphysic dimensions of the
technosphere (that being 'space' and 'time') and the anthropologic
terminological categorization of technosphere, thus both the
anthropocentric and the sociocentric paradigmatics of English computer
vocabulary being reflected.
