Language Technologies from the Terminologist’s Point of View



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.
