This article presents the results of a study on a topic which has received relatively little attention from terminologists: the place of proper names and their derived forms in the formation of scientific and technical terms. The study focusses on the field of artificial intelligence: the morphosyntactic patterns of onomastic forms used in the field; the complex onomastic terminological units seen from the point of view of the proper noun and its referent; and finally, these forms as examined from the point of view of their base unit.
