Implementation of IUPAC recommendations on nomenclature of inorganic compounds into Slovak language

Goal: This project is aimed at implementation of IUPAC recommendations on nomenclature of inorganic compounds into Slovak language. In recent decades, several attempts were made to unify Slovak chemical nomenclature with the intenrational (English) nomenclature. These attempts lead to several misconceptions and discrepancies. Adaptation of IUPAC recommendations will ensure solid and unambiguous terminology, nomenclature principles and language.

Chemické názvoslovie a vzorce sú základným dorozumievacím prostriedkom v chémii. Tento sprievodca predkladá prehľadný súbor základných pravidiel na vytváranie názvov anorganických látok. Podkladom na jeho vytvorenie sú diela Ako tvoriť názvy v anorganickej chémii a Názvoslovie anorganických látok aktualizované o novšie odporúčania IUPAC: Nomenclature of Inorganic Chemistry 2005 a Brief Guide to the Nomenclature of Inorganic Chemistry. Vzhľadom na špecifiká slovenčiny nie je možné použiť všetky odporúčania IUPAC, preto tu uvádzame len tie, ktoré sú ustálené.

Systematic nomenclature of oxoacids, their ions and the so called polyoxometalates is not settled in Slovak language yet. In this work we analyze issues that were introduced in nomenclature by noncontrolled artificial systematization of these names according to the English nomenclature recommended by IUPAC. We found out that the creation of systematic names of this group of compounds is not possible without breaking currently valid general nomenclature rules and we propose a novel method for naming of the anionic part of an acid. We therefore introduce the term “inner anion of an acid”. We use additive nomenclature when naming this component of an acid. This nomenclature system enables one to unify the naming of all oxoacids, isopoly- and heteropolyacids, their derivatives and ions.

The development and origins of the Slovak chemical nomenclature based on the Czech model is outlined. The specificity of this nomenclature in the light of the controlled language phenomenon is discussed and, within this framework, the re-evaluation of linguistic means in the field of inorganic chemistry as well as the symbiosis of the international and Slovak nomenclature items is analyzed. The paper is focused also on the efforts to achieve unambiguity and on the remnants of polysemy of the natural language in this field. A part of the contribution is devoted also to the syntactic structure of inorganic names. © 2016, Czech Society of Chemical Engineering. All rights reserved.
