Abstract

This paper presents the analysis of two-word terminological phrases within distribution system, the specifics of word formation as well as the aspects of interrelation between expert terminology and general vocabulary. Certain lexical and semantic principles in power system terminology in Serbian were pointed out through the analysis of paradigmatic relations, as well as the variation i.e. consistency of their phrasal form upon translation into English. Cross-language influences are particulary discussed, especially foreign origin terminology penetration in the Serbian language. Research results indicate that analysed terms used in its syntactic form can hardly be applied outside the terminology circle which they belong to, given its precise reference to a specific phenomena within the power system, the mode of operation of a specific device or the entire system, an individual part or the wide range of components used in the system, the position or different circumstances peculiar to this profession.
