Fidelia Ibekwe-SanJuan, Anne Condamines and Maria Teresa Cabré (eds.), 
Application-Driven Terminology Engineering,
John Benjamins Current Topics 2, Amsterdam, 2007, 203p.

A common framework under which the various studies on terminology
processing can be viewed is to consider not only the texts from which
the terminological resources are built but particularly the
applications targeted. The current book, first published as a Special
Issue of Terminology (11:1, 2005), analyses the influence of
applications on term definition and processing. Two types of
applications have been identified: intermediary and terminal
applications (involving end users).  Intermediary applications concern
the building of terminological knowledge resources such as
domain-specific dictionaries, ontologies, thesaurus or
taxonomies. These knowledge resources then form the inputs to terminal
applications such as information extraction, information retrieval,
science and technology watch or automated book index building. Most of
the applications dealt with in the book fall into the first
category. This book represents the first attempt, from a
pluridisciplinary viewpoint, to take into account the role of
applications in the processing of terminology.
