  • The appearance and the spread of new and dynamic terminologies in the EU, the frequent use of anglicised terms and the frequent use of abbreviations as part of professional jargon, made us select three English loans – green job, bitcoin and cookie, in order to describe not only their usage in various electronic texts, but also the determinologisation process of their specialised meaning. These terms are incompletely assimilated by the system of the receiver language and, in order to make the analysis herein, we noticed two aspects worth mentioning: on one hand, the morphological and the graphic assimilation of the mentioned terms is a long process due to objective and subjective reasons and, on the other hand, the paraphrase is the most frequent method to explain the specialised meaning. The differences are relevant and depend on the type of text, author and field.
  • L’imposition de certaines nouvelles terminologies dans le paysage de l’Union européenne, l’utilisation fréquente d’une terminologie anglicisante et du jargon professionnel qui abonde de formes siglées, nous a déterminé de choisir trois emprunts d’anglais – green job, bitcoin et cookie pour décrire leur usage dans divers textes électroniques, mais aussi le degré de déterminologisation du sens spécialisé. Ces termes sont incomplètement assimilés par le système de la langue réceptrice et on a remarqué deux aspects: d’une part, l’assimilation morphologique, graphique de ces termes représente un processus de durée dû à des causes objectives et subjectives et, d’autre part, la paraphrase qui est le procédé le plus fréquent pour expliquer le sens spécialisé. Les différences apparaissent en fonction du type de texte, de son auteur et du domaine.
