Modern linguistics equally uses notion and term definitions. Very often even scientists do not differentiate these phenomena using them as synonyms. Moreover, even dictionaries treat them as synonyms. The authors of the article try to distinguish these entities. According to the pioneer paper of A.M. Kaplunenko “Concept – Notion – Term: evolution of semiotic entities in the context of discursive practices” it is possible to make an attempt to prove their difference. Within Discourse of Consensus, participants use notions with limited scope and content constructing the interpretation vector on the basis of key characteristic features of the notion. Under umbrella of Discourse of Expert Community terms system is formed. The duality of these entities brings them into constant dynamics where knowledge may develop from the notion to the term as well as from the term to the notion.
