from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A nomenclature ( Latin nomenclatura , directory of names ) is a collection of terms and technical terms from a specific topic or application area, which is binding for certain areas. The entirety of the terms valid in a subject area forms a terminology .

In the GDR, as in all socialist countries, it was used to denote responsibility for filling certain positions (now commonly referred to as the nomenklatura ). There were two levels of nomenclature: that of the state organs and that of the party.
