In this paper I will report the result of a quan- titative analysis of the dynamics of the con- stituent elements of Japanese terminology. In Japanese technical terms, the linguistic contri- bution of morphemes greatly differ according to their types of origin. To analyse this aspect, a quantitative method is applied, which can prop- erly characterise the dynamic nature of mor- phemes in terminology on the basis of a small sample.
