Abstract

The article presents an interdisciplinary approach towards the analysis of terminology of Constitutional Law from the linguistic and legal perspectives. The article stresses the importance of analyzing and comparing the formal structure of terms denominating concepts of human rights and freedoms in Lithuanian, German and English as one of the main areas of Constitutional Law. The results reveal that these concepts are expressed in the analyzed languages through multi-word terms; however, each language follows different patterns of term formation.
