1. Introduction

The status of the literary language is closely connected with its functioning as the language of science. One of the ways of developing the Kazakh language as the language of science is first and foremost to define the scientific status of it. Second, to regulate constituent parts of terminological units. Third, to determine methods and techniques of defining the meaning of the term.

Scientific and terminological problems of scientific style and terminology have been investigated by D. S. Lotte (1969), G. O. Vinokur (1939), V. D. Petushkov (1972, pp. 102-116), A. A. Reformatsky (1968, pp. 103-125), O. I. Blinova (1981, pp. 45-58), V. P. Danilenko (1977), F. P. Sorokoletov (1976), B. N. Golovin (1973), O. V. Felde (2010, pp. 71-76), C. V. Grinyev (1993; 2008, p. 304), I. P. Galperin, V. V. Vinogradov, A. V. Superanskaya, etc. In the works of the XX- th century scholars V. M. Leychick (1989), S. D.

L. Mishlanova (2003), V. A. Tatarinov (1995; 1996), M. N. Volodina (1997, pp. 217-222), etc.

Dosmukhambeduly (1997, p. 176), K. Kemengerov, S. Zhienbayev, the burning topic of Kazakh national terminology was brought to a qualitative close by R. Syzdyk (2009, p. 518), A. Kaydarov (2008, p. 343), U. Aitbayev (1997, p. 240), Sh. Kurmanbayev (1999; 2008; 2014), Sh. Mazhitayeva (2000, p. 234; 2007; 2014).
