National Perception of the Definition of the Grammatical Term through the Reception of the Ancient Tradition

The article analyzes the stages of formation and development of ukrainian morphological terminology as influenced by the Greek-Roman antique tradition. the article emphasizes that the determinative influence of the ancient tradition on later European linguistics is largely due to the orientation of the tradition towards the realization of logical categories. this orientation in the language provide it with a potentially univer- sal range. The generalization of the analyzed examples of grammatical terms in the modern ukrainian language shows that when ukrainian grammatical terminology was being created, the Greek-latin gram- matical terms were a kind of “prototype”. theoretical generalizations will be used in further research on word formation.
