The Formation of Film Terminology in the Russian Language in the Context of Cinema’s Historical Development
The author argues that Russian film studies texts of various genres are full of borrowed terms, mostly of English origin, like blockbuster, buddy movie, backstage, sequel, remake, arthouse, etc. Their use in modern Russian is carried out by means of transcription and transliteration, most often from English. In comparison with them, the main terms of cinema that have been fixed in the vocabulary of the Russian language are perceived as devoid of their foreign origin. Thus, such terms as “montazh” (editing), “rakurs” (foreshortening), “kinematograf” (cinematography), “ekran” (screen), “kamera” (camera), etc., also being words of foreign origin, in the course of cinema development have become a part of Russian language, which can be explained by the internationality of cinema, close international cooperation of cinematographers and journalists. The article addresses to the origins of cinema as a new form of attraction and follows the process of forming its terminology against the background of its general development, as well as a classification of source terms by their origin.
Keywords: film terminology; mastering of movie terms in the process of cinema’s development; modern replenishment of the stock of terms.
