Abstract

This article is devoted to fi nding out the semantic meaning of borrowed elements from Greek and Latin in the sublanguage of electrical engineering in modern English, which are considered the formation elements in the structure of compound terminological units. During the work it was found out that the borrowed affi xes ensure the transparency of the presentation of the content of the whole unit and allow to describe depicted object, process or phenomenon of the analyzed sublanguage as accurately and concisely as it is possible. In the process of studding the structure of compound terminological units, the location of the borrowed affi xes was determined, what gives us the opportunity to confi rm that in most cases these borrowed affi xes are situated in the preposition, at least − in the postposition. Simultaneous addition of two or more borrowed elements in the structure of the compound terms is characterized by high frequency
