Abstract

In general, terminology specialists have little to contribute to the topic “natural language” (that is the concept proper of “general language” with regard to “universal language” including so-called “sublanguages”) as far as “general language” is concerned; they can only listen and show their interest. However, as soon as issues of specialized languages with their high amount of terminological units are addressed, they are very well in a position to contribute considerably. This was the actual focus of the critical remarks I made on the occasion of the seminar and which I would like to sum up in this paper. However, I would like to stress that the issues addressed below were not intended to delimitate against each other the disciplines concurring in this field, but rather to find a sensible integration of their theories and methods.
