Title: Term in Author’s Publicism
Rubric: Terminology of Social and Economic Sciences
Abstract: The article analyses the use of terms and the author’s terminology creation in texts of the journalistic style, in particular, based on the essays. The analysis involves texts by Yu. Shevelev, Ye. Sverstiuk, M. Ryabchuk. The verification of authorship is made by means of the corpus GRAC and the retrieval system Google.
In the author’s journalism, the use of well-known terms and the creation of occasional units are observed. The rethinking and metaphorization of well-known socio-political terms are investigated.
The tendency of acquiring the terminoids with the author’s neologisms with the prospect of entering the socio-political terminology system was revealed, in the context of the modern updating of social terminology.
Occasional neologisms remain within the scope of the author’s text, since they are not created by the need to define a particular phenomenon or process, but primarily for the expression of the author’s assessment.
The gradation scale according to correlation between generally accepted and authors’ terms in their functioning is developed:
1) the term as a unit of the terminology system;
2) transient / unstable unit (bi-directional dynamics):
3) individual (occasional) terminological unit (created / interpreted by author).
Keywords: journalistic style, essayism, term, terminoid, collocation.
