Those quotations content examples of: titles of the articles, begins and ends of them and the parts of them, different types of metaphors, neologisms. It seems that the category of irony is the common attribute of all of these language acts of discussed author. The general conclusion underlines that the expression of the creative personality is possible even in the particularly organized (scientific) usage of the language.
