Abstract:

The discovery of rules for the systematicity and dynamics of
terminology creations is essential for a sound basis of a theory of
terminology. This quest provides the driving force for The Dynamics of
Terminology in which Dr. Kageura demonstrates the interaction of these
two factors on a specific corpus of Japanese terminology which, beyond
the necessary linguistic circumstances, also has a model character for
similar studies. His detailed examination of the relationships between
terms and their constituent elements, the relationships among the
constituent elements and the type of conceptual combinations used in
the construction of the terminology permits deep insights into the
systematic thought processes underlying term creation. To compensate
for the inherent limitation of a purely descriptive analysis of
conceptual patterns, Dr. Kageura offers a quantitative analysis of the
patterns of the growth of terminology. His fascinating and unique
contribution to our understanding of the terminological process
reveals the powerful interaction of linguistic possibilities and the
naming process of conceptual entities.
