The present paper considers the syntactic way of term-formation in English and German terminological systems of hotel business. The study is based on the comparative analysis of the terminological combinations in two languages with different structures. The rationale for the problem of the research lies in insufficient information on the comparative study of the syntactic way of the term-formation in English and German languages, especially within the terminological system of hotel business. Furthermore, the terminological system of hotel business is one of the most dynamic as a result of globalization processes in tourism. Consequently, determining general and specific tendencies of its development will allow us to define the pattern of the cultural integration process and the way this process impacts the languages analyzed. Therefore the article examines general and specific features in the structure of English and German terminological combinations on the basis of hotel business terminology and defines productive models of the syntactic way of term-formation in both languages. The analysis of the syntactic way of term-formation is essential for structuralizing the terminological system of hotel business, which is supposed to be actively developing in English and German languages.Keywords: terminology, term-formation, syntactic way, comparative analysis, linguistics.
