Philology Matters


This article reflects the experience of a comprehensive systematic and phenomenological study of computer and the Internet jargon, which is now widely recognized as an important tool and subject. One of the unique features of computer and the Internet terminology is the emergence of computer jargon specific to their users. After all, special vocabulary is only used in industry and is self-explanatory. This research is devoted to the study of the sources of computer and the Internet jargon in Uzbek and English.
In fact, the language of science and technology emerges and develops on the basis of the general literary language. The structure of the language of the science and technology obeys the rules of the language, the main types of language units are expressed in it. The relationship between the language of the science and technology and the general literary language has been analyzed by the author in the way of analyzing the jargons of the computer and the Internet systematically. That is to say, it has been undertaken in the examples of the literary language relations. The literary language and the language of the science and technology practically use the commonly-used words and scientific lexical units. The terminological lexical units are also connected with the general literary language, which means that it gives the chance of representing and naming newly appeared notions. Practical means of creating the terms are determined in the process as well. Meanwhile, professional jargons are also enriched by means of non-professionally-used terminological lexical units in its turn.
Before analyzing the linguistic features of computer and the Internet jargon, we considered it necessary to analyze the terms/terminology, computer and the Internet terms, theoretical views given to them by linguists and experts in this field. In the modern English and Uzbek languages jargons are widely used in terms of many concepts related to computer and the Internet activities.
