Rubric: Іndustrial and Agricultural Terminology
Abstract: The article analyzes the subjects of thesis researches and individual publications on the megasystem of transportation terminology. The scientific researches and articles published in professional journals on terminology highlight the processes of stratification or streamlining in the vast technical industry under study, which comprises all modes of transportation. The materials reviewed are, first of all, scientific works of the Ukrainian terminologists. Moreover, the researches on transportation terminology in Belarusian and Russian terminology are summarized.
In quantitative terms, more scientific works dealing with transportation terminology have been defended in Russia (50 scientific papers, including: automotive engineering terminology – 14 scientific researches; air transport terminology – 14 theses; water transport terminology – 14 theses, railway transport terminology – 5 theses, transportation terminology – 3 scientific papers). In the Ukrainian terminology s, the number of defended qualifying papers is almost half as many – 20 theses, but publications on transport terminology are widespread. And there are fewer researches in Belarusian terminology – 13 dissertations, the subject of which is the terms used in the transportation industry.
After processing the abstract databases of East Slavic terminology, we aim to investigate the representation of the megasystem of transportation terminology in other, in particular, West Slavic and South Slavic, languages.
