Abstract:

The dynamics and systematicity of terminology: this book addresses these
essential and intriguing aspects of terminology, by using quantitative
methodologies which have been underutilized in the field to date. Through the
analysis of the Japanese terminologies of six domains and with special
reference to the dynamic behaviour and the status of borrowed and native
morphemes, the book reveals: (a) how borrowed and native morphemes contribute
to the construction of these terminologies, and how these contributions are
likely to change as the terminologies grow; (b) how borrowed and native
morphemes contribute to the systematicity or systematic representation of
conceptual systems; and (c) how borrowed and native morphemes are related to
each other and to what extent they are mixed in constructing terminologies. It
also examines the epistemological implications of applying these quantitative
methodologies, which leads back to such essential questions as the
relationship between terminology as a whole and individual terms and what we
understand terms to be when we talk about the growth of terminologies. The
book should be of interest to a wide audience, including theoretical
terminologists, terminographers, quantitative linguists, computational
linguists, lexicologists and lexicographers.
