Abstract: 

The word formation by affixoidation is an active and widely used process, especially in Greek, German, Russian languages etc. For the Romance languages, this model of word formation is less specific because of their analytical nature. In the report the author presents words formed by affixoids, scholarly elements of Greek-Latin origin that form the core of the international terminological lexicon. The first words formed by affixoidation entered the Romanian language along with the translations of Greek, Italian, French, around XVII – XVIII centuries. The Greek word formation is updated in the scientific style and in the specialized terminological languages. The terminological neologisms (formed by affixoids) maintain their international status; this facilitates the unification, planning
and standardization of the international terminology

Keywords:
