View: 4095The 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.
