Abstract:

Previous work on terminology planning can be, more or less, divided into
general guidelines, local planning, and translation-based activities. This
book, however, by avoiding this line of research and any kind of prescription,
represents a movement towards generalisation as a prerequisite of
theorisation. Its research is predicated on the hypothesis that all
terminological activities are founded upon some fundamental principles, which,
at the same time, are manifested through context-bound variations or
parameters.

A particular advantage of the book is its employing of both field research and
a review of research literature. The former allows it to carry out a
comparative study by using a maximum variation sampling technique for
gathering data from four language agencies of different ecolinguistic
situations, namely Termcat (Catalan), TNC (Swedish), DGLFLF (French), and the
Academy of Persian Language and Literature in Iran. In order to this, it uses
a questionnaire concentrating on the macro- and micro-structures of the target
organisations as a route map. The literature review allows the book to benefit
from research documents from more than thirty sociolinguistic communities.

The book’s unique feature includes the introduction of new concepts such as
linguistics of science, systemic terminology, systemic planning, terminology
argumentation, and sociocognitive terminometrics, among others. A further
distinguishing feature is the fact that it discusses terminology not in a
vacuum, but as a component of the language of science system.
