COMPUTER TERMS AS A RESULT OF DERIVATIONAL PROCESSES IN THE GROUP OF NOUNS DENOTING A PERSON

Nowadays real life has become a “collaborator” and no more an antagonist of virtual reality that has long been very important for many people. The fact of interaction between man and the computer is evident. One of the levels of this interpenetration is the linguistic one. The links between cybernetics and linguistics are especially important since any newborn sphere must “arm itself” with necessary terminology. This article is devoted to the peculiarities of the emergence of modern computer terms, which are formed according to natural laws of the Russian language thus being samples of standardized lexis. This fact contradicts the opinion of those who believe that computer vocabulary has a negative influence on the language contaminating it. We prove in our work that it is possible to achieve a compromise settlement over the influence of the computer on language.

In the linguistics of the third millennium there are a number of problems that are unsolved or not studied enough. One of such problems is the status of semantic word-formation in the process of which a new nominative unit appears by means of reinterpretation of the meaning of the parent word. V.M. Markov and his followers develop in their works the idea of semantic word-formation and describe productive models of metaphoric and metonymic types. This point of view proves groundlessness of traditional views on polysemy and lexical-semantic variation in their relation to homonymy. This micro-investigation into one of the layers of lexis makes it possible to see the mechanism of semantic derivation of new words in Russian. We analyze nouns being in general use and special computer terms in order to justify a great role the personal computer plays in our life.
