Abstract

The author of this article based her work on the materials of integrate scientific researches in the field of professional communication lexicology, accomplished by teachers and students of the department offoreign languages for specific purposes at National University of Food Technologies (Kyiv). What was taken into consideration for these studies was the specific terminology of technological, technical, and economical specialties majored at NUFT. Firstly, the inter-linguistic homonymy was affirmed as the lexical massif requiring the special attention in translation ofprofessionally oriented texts (whenever the words from different languages are spelt or pronounced approximately the same way) in order not to allow confusing the homonymic terms and, furthermore, distorting the content of the initial text. Secondly, the main rules of using the indicated words in communication were displayed (for instance, referring to different dictionaries; combining the dubious lexemes in a logically coherent sentence as a didactic method; searching for the meanings offrequently confused words in the context of literary works, mostly poems and song lyrics thanks to their meter and rhyme as the mnemonic factors). Finally, the importance of juxtaposition methods in studying the homonyms in various languages, aimed to help the students of non- philological high schools develop their skills of individual scientific research work, was established, with additional substantiation by the lists of homonyms created by both teachers and students. What is more, such a list can include the examples of inter-linguistic homonyms borrowed from other fields of sciences as well as from various languages, besides English, which would be quite a convincing evidence of the students ’ versatile experience attained during their studies at NUFT.
