All rights reserved.The article considers military vocabulary as one of the effective language tools with which the manipulation of the readers' consciousness in the media is carried out. We concluded that the use of military vocabulary in a manipulative function is not prohibited, but the internal principles of journalists should tell them whether a military word is really necessary or it is simply a tool of speculation by the feelings of the readers. At the same time, readers, who are aware of the rich manipulative potential of military vocabulary, should strive to resist the manipulations created with its help.
