The authors of this paper study the anthropotoponymic and terminological
structures of English scientific and technological discourse (the sphere of
nanotechnology and fibre optic technology). The structural peculiarities of
anthroponyms, eponyms, toponyms, terms and terminological word-combinations
are examined. The classification of the mentioned above lexical units according to
their numerical composition is provided.
