Abstract. The author of this article studies the eponymic and toponymic structures of the English scientific-technical discourse (the sphere of nanotechnologies and fiber-optic technology). In the article the features of structural models of eponyms and toponyms are considered, the differentiation of the indicated terms is carried out, the complex classification of eponyms and toponyms according to their structure is conducted, their cumulative classification is proposed proceeding from the quantitative structure of the structural model. The author of the article offers a detailed description of each distinguished structure, conducts a statistical analysis of the considered examples, draws a conclusion about the most frequent toponymic-eponymic model in the scientific-technical discourse.
Key words and phrases: - , , , , , scientific-technical discourse, toponym, toponymy, eponym, eponymy.
