Summary/Abstract: The article investigates the general scientific and linguistic methods used in the study of the English professional language of cardiology. The paper analyzes the methods, procedures and techniques that are used to determine the structural and semantic features of the English cardiac terms, to determine the mechanisms of creation of terminological units, thematic groups and to describe the lexical-semantic field of cardiology terminology. We can conclude that for the study of the specialty of cardiology, it is important to use a complex methodology that includes: descriptive method, structural, word-formation and morphological methods, field modeling method, and the method of quantitative calculations. The methodological basis of the research became the main general scientific, linguistic and actual terminological approaches of scientific knowledge, among which the leading place is given to synchronous, system-structural, as well as terminology, which allow to study and analyze the necessary research material in detail. Due to the structural approach it was possible to establish the features of the internal structure of the terminology system of the specialized language of cardiology. The system approach enables the study of cardiological terminology as a system (a set of interrelated terminological units that denote the special notions of the industry) with its inherent hierarchical structure and the specificity of structural and semantic features.
