Abstract

The article is dedicated to linguistic research of the term elements used in military sphere to research their dialectic connection to related terms. taking into account the conceptual burden analysis, the article offers next terminological sequence: attribute, property, characteristic, capability, ability, quality, effectiveness. The conceptual burden of the term “combat capabilities” is clarified, and for this reason, use of the term “combat potential” is proposed, which interpretation is taken from foreign languages. Crossline between the terms “combat potential” and “combat potential” is drawn. Considering the intended function of military formations, the article proposes to determine the applicability to perform combat mission with the use of term “quality”. Also, the terms “quality” and “effectiveness” are proposed to use in the following manner: “quality” is used to describe the object feasibility, “effectiveness” – to depict the object adaptiveness to reach the object mission. Thus, the mentioned division would allow perform the researches including object description in relation to the functioning missions (quality) and object functioning purpose achievement process (effectiveness).
