Summary/Abstract: This article discusses the deficiency of the current theory of terminology which excludes the possibility of the contextual theory of a term. The author argues that a comprehensive theory of terminology should incorporate features of linguistic, semasiological and epistemic context in order to provide an interpretation of a term which would be satisfactory from both theoretical and pragmatic point of view.
