У статті здійснено спробу схарактеризувати епонімічні терміни-абревіатури, простежити тенденції їх використання в сучасній українській науковій мові, визначити їхню специфіку. (In the article it is made an attempt to describe eponymic terms-abbreviations, to trace the trends in the use of modern Ukrainian scientific terminology, to define their specific features. It was found that among the terms containing eponyms there are abbreviations of all types: partial, initial and combined. From among the eponymic abbreviated words the initial abbreviations are the most common, being either independent linguistic units or components of terminological word-combinations. Partial and combined abbreviations are rare among the eponymic terms, indicating that they are not perspective. It was established that eponymic terms-abbreviations represent several topical groups. It is the eponymic part of a word-combination that is abbreviated and represented by a combination of three or more proper names-bulky and there fore unsuitable for writing, pronunciation and memorization. The analysis of translation terminology glossaries gives grounds to conclude that in the Ukrainian language the use of eponymic abbreviations is less widespread as compared to other European languages. The eponymic abbreviations in terminological systems are mostly translation loan words, and some of them retained phonetic and graphic form of donor language. It was concluded that the increased use of eponymic abbreviations in recent decades has demonstrated the tendency towards the adaptability of verbose terminological word-combinations with eponymic components to modern fast and daunting scientific communication, which is inherent to terminologies in many languages.)
