Abstract:The paper aims at revealing the general features of folk and scientific botanical denominative models with succinct insights into the sources of naming. After the brief presentation of the properties featured by the two systems of naming, the schematic description of the sources of naming is used to reveal the continuities and discontinuities between the denominative models as well as the cognitive focus implied in the process of naming. The theoretical assumptions are supported with lexical evidence drawn from various dictionaries, encyclopedias and books on Romanian and English plants and plant names.
