Abstract

Background: The turn of the XXI century is characterized by a marked tendency towards a significant increase in colloquial vocabulary in the Ukrainian language, among which a considerable part is taken up by a variety of lexical jargon (youth, computer, sports, military, etc.). Among these sub-standard lexical units, the sports jargon tends to develop most dynamically, and, therefore, requires a special in-depth study with a subsequent presentation of its results in a separate scientific work. This very notion conditions the relevance of our research. Purpose is to define principal reasons causing the emergence and increase in intensity of the use of sports jargon in modern Ukrainian, to characterize their main thematic groups, to identify sources of the recorded jargon units update and analyze their meaning, word-formation specificity and stylistic features. Results: Sports jargon represents an extremely dynamic subsystem, which being under the influence of extraand intralingual factors is constantly enriched with new and interesting lexical units that serve the development of the Ukrainian national language. As a result of the analysis of sports jargon we have singled out seven thematic groups denoting persons and ten groups signifying common names. We have found out that main sources of sports jargon update and enrichment are word formation based on specific vocabulary and foreign sources (almost 90% of the analyzed words) as well as borrowed entries (over 10%). The paper also reveals stylistic features of the analyzed units functioning in conversational, journalistic, and artistic styles. Discussion: Sports jargon forms a peculiar and interesting corpus of words, which function not only as precise nominations of certain realities, concepts, phenomena, or actions thus becoming more striking and understandable in comparison with literary lexical units, but also as meticulous characteristics of emotional and expressive names. Some of them are viewed as potential units of the Ukrainian normative sports vocabulary and terminology. We believe that sports jargon requires a further and even more scrupulous study within the framework of cognitive and ethno-cultural aspects.
