Shchyhlo L. V. Diachronic aspects of word - formation system in german language
Keywords:word-formation, diachronic aspect, synergetic methodology.
The article deals with evolutionary processes in the language. Wide possibilities within learning
mechanisms of self-regulation of word formation as an open unbalanced non-linear system is
provided by synergetics – a self-organization theory aimed at discovering general development
principles. The subject of the study is diachronic aspects of word-formation system in the German
language. The origin and semantic spectrum of word-formation formants on the different periods of
the German language development are described. Special attention is payed to the modeling of selforganization process of word-formation means from the perspective of synergetic science. Applying
the principles of synergetic methodology within linguistic researches is regarded as a new tool for
studying both the language system in general and its subsystems in particular.
