Abstract:Differentiation of terminology and nomenclature remains in the focus of modern linguistic research. The relevance of carrying out such a research is caused by the fact that the Stratification of Language for Special Purposes (LSP) Theory is being still developed. Considering that the dictionary definitions are the primary human knowledge systematization of reality awareness, the article attempts to analyze numerous definitions of the term “nomenclature” to state the bundle of distinctive features as LSP. The material involved monolingual explanatory dictionaries, both common focus and terminological. The Definitional analysis allows identifying generic concepts and specific signs of the term thus extracting a complex of term semantization means. The most common directions of the term definitions “nomenclature” are the following thematic blocks: philosophical, social, historical-political, economic, and linguistic. As a result of the analysis of dictionaries, interdisciplinary homonyms and polysemy of the term were recorded.
