This week for our #MondayReading suggestion we would like to introduce you to the book Terminology in Everyday Life edited by Marcel Thelen from Zuyd University-Maastricht and Frieda Steurs from Lessius University College.
According to the publisher, Terminology in Everyday Life contains a selection of fresh and interesting articles by prominent scholars and practitioners in the field of terminology based on papers presented at an international terminology congress on the impact of terminology on everyday life. […] The book wants to demonstrate that terminology is of everyday importance and is of interest to everyone interested in the theory and practice of terminology, from terminologists to computer specialists to lecturers and students.
This collection gathers articles both of theory and practice in the terminology field. It covers issues related to terminology difficulties in specific languages, the European English phenomenon, the creation of terminological infrastructure at national level, best practices for terminology, standardisation through automated term extraction and editing tools and cognitive concept modelling.
