Title: Linguophilosophic Parameters of English Innovations in Technosphere
Description:

The monograph researches the aspects of the English vocabulary development
processes in the sphere of new computer technologies. The primary
supposition of cyber word-stock terminological nature leads into the study
of both linguistic (morphological and semantic) and ontological
paradigmatic parameters of innovative cyber-vocabulary of the English
language. Linguistically, the development of English cyber-vocabulary
acquires an ambivalent character. Primarily, the sources of English
computer vocabulary root in the conventional word-formation types. However,
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 evolutionary progress of cybervocabulary
determines the new conceptual approach to the “word-formation element”
notion. The ontological paradigmatic parameters of English
cyber-vocabulary are featured from the following perspectives:
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 innovative
cyber-vocabulary being reflected.
