Summary/Abstract: The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the effects of economic and social globalization on linguistic globalization, and the types of implied problems and tasks for terminology. world languages and small languages differ markedly in the reasons universal and special causes of terminological difficulties appear related to languages and new domains. In my study, I examine these effects and illustrate the phenomenon with examples.
