Abstract:The analysis of the connections between popular and scientific terminologies is an area of research that various contemporary cognitive scientists consider of crucial importance for the description of the linguistic mechanisms used to coin names and for the analysis of the cognitive processes activated during the coinage and the use of a name assigned to a certain aspect of reality. The present paper describes some of the dominant features of two denominative models, folk and scientific, regarding plant names and outlines the most prominent onomasiological domains mirrored by the Romanian ethnobotanical terminology.
Key words:cognitive models, denominative properties, plant names
