Summary/Abstract: This article endeavours to describe one of the most significant qualities of the academic style, that is, the semantic system that has been shaped within it. The author aims at discussing the terms used in old academic publications in the field of linguistics (from the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries). Since one of the key features of the terminological system is its changeability, the comparison of vocabulary used in texts written in different periods is believed to be justifiable. Basing on the analysis of the research material, the author characterises tendencies in the development of marked vocabulary in old scientific publications, taking into account the way it has been introduced in the text.
