This collection of 14 articles by experts from different backgrounds deals with linguistic problems and technical aspects of terminology; in addition, there are articles relating to terminology in specific subject fields – lexicography, physical sciences, chemistry, social sciences and medicine.By presenting various approaches and applications, the volume raises fundamental questions about the use of concepts and the ordering of knowledge. Moreover, important new insights into the principles and methods employed in terminology management are offered by the ways in which contributors have tackled problems of communication in their specific subject fields.
