Abstract. The article is devoted to analyzing the specificity of forming interdisciplinary terms in the modern English language. The authors examine the structural types of English biomechanics terminological units, identify the basic principles of term formation in this scientific discipline. The research findings indicate that biomechanics interdisciplinary conceptions are presented as linguistic formulas and logico-geometrical models, and it largely promotes unambiguous interpretation and encourages their use in other scientific disciplines. Therefore instead of developing new basic concepts the scientists manage to expand the semantics and the sphere of usage of the existing terms. Biomechanics term corpus consists basically from key terms which were borrowed from other terminological systems and preserved their original meaning; derivative and compound terms (word-combinations); terms which were borrowed from other terminological systems but partially changed their semantics.
