Metaphorization of Computer Jargon as a Method of Education

N.S. Nasrullaeva


However, the scope of use of computer language, including jargon, is wide enough and will continue to expand even further. Therefore it is important what this language will be like. In domestic linguistics, jargons were regarded as undesirable and even negative, as they usually include obscenely colored vocabulary. Computer jargon, being a means of self-expression of people of different levels of culture, education, age, is also a collection of vocabulary of various expressive stylistic coloring. The ways of forming slang vocabulary were very diverse. One of such methods is metaphorization - transfer of the name of one object to another on the basis of similarity.
