Interstyle Displacements of Lexical Items Against Social Dynamics

Keywords: legal vocabulary, journalism, figurative meaning, stylistic role

Abstract

The article examines the functioning of legal lexical items in journalistic texts on economic issues, which usually transcribe journalism.

The research analyses some legal nominations used with known and interpreted meanings in dictionaries, as well as those that need explanation, as lexicographical works do not record them.

Particular attention is paid to lexical items that have acquired figurative meanings.

The use of legal nominations in economic journalism shows not only to the intersectoral character of certain terms, but also to the transition of language units from one scope, branch, activity to another.

We conclude that due to figurative meanings the terms lose their uniqueness, which makes it possible to trace the processes of determinologization in the Ukrainian language.

Keywords: legal vocabulary, journalism, figurative meaning, stylistic role.
