Peculiarities of the English loanwords top-, VIP- functioning in the modern Russian language
The paper describes some aspects of English loanwords top- and VIP- in the modern Russian language. The morphological status of the components depends on their derivative value in the donor language (analytical adjective, prefixoid) or according to the derivational model of the recipient language (radixoid, affixoid, root). It is substantiated that the prepositive component top- acts as a sociopragmatic marker with the value of the highest position held by the compared objects in various ratings...
Investigation of influences parameters and topology of magnetic field peripheral zone stationary plasma thruster on the efficiency of the cathode-compensator
In this paper it is investigated an influence of magnetic field characteristics (parameters and topology) of SPT using SPT-100 thruster model on efficiency of cathode-compensator operation while the cathode is translated. During investigations the comparison results of experiments and calculations suggests influence on efficiency of cathode-compensator operation either magnetic field topology or magnetic field induction in cathode position. It is founded a correlation between magnetic field induction...
. Strategy and practice of partial non-translation in contemporary poetry (a case study of Hong Kong and Russian authors)
The paper centers on the phenomenon of non-translation in the texts of bilingual poets who perform self-translation into the lect of a dominant, ‘larger’ tradition (Putonghua / Russian). Non-translation is set in motion in the conditions of enhanced linguistic reflection of its authors and serves as a marker of a special affective connection with a lect that is permanently associated with a weaker position. Paradoxically, the attempt to expand readership by translating into ‘larger’ lects...
Ways to improve soft skills model for teaching topographic anatomy and operative surgery
This article focuses on new ways to improve soft-skills training as well as to teach topographic anatomy and operative surgery. A key objective of contemporary professional education, particularly, that in medicine, is to build professional and discipline-specific competencies. This, however, is not sufficient for day-to-day medical practice. To develop as professionals, students need so-called universal competencies.
Before constructing a new model of studying a discipline, it was im-portant to...
Spatial distribution of mesoscale eddies in the Southern Ocean as an indicator of climate change and biological productivity of the ocean water
Using satellite altimetry data, the author describes the spatial distribution and kinematic parameters of mesoscale eddies in the Southern Ocean, its seafloor topography and the main fronts positions. The kinematic parameters of ocean eddies are divided into two groups based on the geographic determinism of their distribution. The described spatial and temporal variability of these parameters is indicative of large and medium-scale processes in the Southern Ocean. The research confirms the impact...

Toponyms as a convolutional cultural linguistic code
This article considers the coding of linguistic and extralinguistic infor-mation contained in a special class of proper names, namely, toponyms. The article presents new data on the development of the “Toponymy of Russia” information system. Based on the entries relating to Smolensk geographical place names, the author demonstrates the abilities of the electronic resource. The article stresses the need to involve Kaliningrad scholars in the resources expansion.
