Linguistic patterns in the lexical-semantic subsystem of new public administration: typology and features

Keywords: lexical-semantic subsystem, lexical-semantic field, governance, laws of vocabulary development, lexi-cal semantics, language sign, internal relations.


The authors analyzed the confeptosphere of public administration from the position of representation in the Rus-sian language as an area of increased interest from the controlling structures in the field of state security. The au-thors relied on the postulates of the presence of three dimensions inherent in verbal signs: due to the indirect connec-tions of words and objects of semantics, determined by the relationship of words to each other syntagmatics and due to the relationship of words and communicants of pragmatics; about the discreteness and continuity of verbal signs, about the relative simplicity and minimal variability of intersystem relations between them, about the limited motivation of verbal signs and the inverse proportion of morphemic complexity and semantic structure of the word. The focus of attention is on studying the influence of language patterns on the functioning of the “dominant” lexi-cal-semantic subsystem of public administration in the Russian language of the recent period, associated with the ideas about the specifics of public administration focused on ensuring law and order and constitutionally estab-lished rights and freedoms of citizens. The paper concludes that lexical and semantic patterns are important in de-termining the main trends in the development of the lexical system of the Russian language in general, individual subsystems and language signs in particular.
