Title: History of Linguistic Term: Lexicographic Aspect
Rubric: Terminography theory and practice of compiling branch dictionaries
Abstract: It is stressed the importance of historical study of a term in order to trace its development and to predict further evolution. The study of the linguistic history is intended to help deepen knowledge about its terminology system, enriching terminological dictionary with “retrospective” of a given term, useful for understanding the difficult path that passes nomination during its existence.
On the material of grammars, dictionaries and scientific works formal and semantic modifications of the linguistic term are presented. The model of the historical passport of a term is given, which consists of a registry term, the most ancient term fixation, its formal and semantic modifications, present term fixation and research comments according to the analyzed term. We consider it as a full source of information about its evolution and the first step before compiling the historical dictionary of linguistic terms. We conclude that the way of the proposed term history representation can be used to study the historical retrospective of any branch terminology.
