Abstract. The article examines the formation of the English multi-component terms by the example of military aviation vocabulary. Using the methods of component, semantic-cognitive and quantitative-structural analysis, the author identifies the most productive term-formative models and reveals the factors influencing term formation. The conclusions allow systematizing new multi-component aviation terms and make it possible to predict neologisms in the sphere of military aviation. The research findings can be used while compiling special dictionaries and optimizing machine translation in the sphere of applied linguistics. The research results will be useful while teaching English at higher military aviation school.
Key words and phrases: многокомпонентные термины, аббревиатура, аббревиирование, акроним, акронимизация, продуктивная модель, multi-component terms, abbreviation, abbreviating, acronym, acronymization, productive model.
