The current paper refers to peculiar features of scientific and scientific and popular texts on construction economics. Among those being regarded here, there are professional text coherence and cohesion. Constructio economic terminology is an example of several scientific field integrations and interrelations, made up of construction and economic term aggregates, correlated with these science notion systems. Term is a word or word combination used in professional language, aimed at detonating special notions or objects characterized by normativity, systematicity, definitivity and precision. National language terminology enrichment is predominantly made up due to terminologization of word combinations, forming in turn compound terms. Professional lexis plays a special role among the lexical means of cohesion connection in professional texts. It is an important tool of actualization of identity, opposition, implication, particular and common, class, variety, etc. The term’s important feature is its ability to be the key cohesion component of professional texts. Term’s cohesion function provides discursive cohesiveness of professional construction economic text organization. Discursive importunateness of cohesive lexis consists in its ability to connect terms into nominative construction.
