Network space and academic style: terminological neologisms

Digital Communication: Promoting of Scientific and Educational Issues

A demanded requirement and consequence of academic communication today, promoting scientific results in the global academic space, is professional bilingualism. Terminology as the main translator of new knowledge, introducing new developments and ideas into scientific use, is borrowed by active internationally published authors, bypassing the stage of unification and standardization, as a result of which scientific texts in national languages intended for national scientific journals and conference proceedings demonstrate competition between national and borrowed terminologies, while the use of terminological neologisms often indicates poor knowledge of the terminology adopted in domestic tradition. As a result, the quality of national scientific texts is rapidly deteriorating both informatively and stylistically. Discussing the ways and means of introducing new terminology seems both urgent and timely. The objectives of this study are to propose a procedure for extracting new English terminology and to describe its presentation in modern Russian scientific texts. The research bases on original text corpora compiled for a definite subject domain, namely, Internet and linguistic technologies.
