Modern Approaches to Terminological Theories and Applications
Series Title: Linguistic Insights. Studies in Language and Communication.
Vol. 36 (2006)
Publisher: Peter Lang

Book URL:

This volume comprises contributions originally presented at the 15th
European Symposium on Languages for Special Purposes held at the
University of Bergamo on 29 August - 2 September 2005. The volume is
divided into four parts: Approaches to Terminological Theories; Terms in
Discourse;  Knowledge Elicitation, Ordering and Management; Term
Extraction and Terminographical Work. The research presented in the
various contributions to this volume clearly indicates that terminology as
an inter- and transdisciplinary field of knowledge is firmly developing
its theoretical foundations and practical applications in accordance with
and within the framework of its overall goal: to ensure and to augment the
quality of communication with professional content.
