ABSTRACT
This paper aims at identifying and analyzing some of the specific linguistic features of Physics of electricity in Romanian, as well as the manner of formation and functioning of scientific discourse in this field. The emergence of new branches of science, in the twentieth century, led not only to the increase in number of terminologies and to referential delimitation of terms, but also to the creation of an emerging interdisciplinary scientific vocabulary. We performed a double analysis, in terms of lexical structure and discursive organization, in an attempt to capture the early technical and scientific discourse features, in its didactic subtype, from the beginning of the twentieth century. Regarding the text syntagmatic features, in this paper we will consider the interference of verbal and non-verbal signs. The semiotic approach aims at an analysis of the share occupied by the two types of signs and of the modality in which they combine to create the Physics of electricity discourse.
