Concord of forms of Latin and Ukrainian names in classification of birds

H. V. Fesenko

The article shows that possibilities for using unification and typification principles in the Ukrainian nomenclature, similar to that in Latin, are based on similarity of forming adjectives as derivatives from singular nouns, i.e. on diversity of adjective endings in both languages. Forms of Latin and Ukrainian names in bird classification are compared for different taxonomic ranks such as order, suborder, superfamily, family, subfamily, tribe, genus, species, subspecies. Some peculiarities of forming compound names of genus and species in the national nomenclature are characterized. There are also considered some generally accepted native names of higher taxonomic ranks that do not correspond to the typification principle.
