Description 
The validity of traditional terminology principles
(Wusterian) has been lately questioned by specialists. The main point
of discussion is the term nature, for traditional terminology it is a
symbol which permits a universal denomination of the concepts of a
domain. However, for descriptive terminology, most recent approach of
term analysis claims that a term is a linguistic sign and, therefore,
belongs to a linguistic system. Thus, terminologies are not universals
concepts, but they belong to a specific language, i.e., to a specific
discourse. Some linguistic facts (semantic relations) confirm this
approach as polysemy and synonymy.

Table ronde:
Terminologie Traditionnelle et Terminologie Descriptive

La validit� des principes de la terminologie traditionnelle
(W�sterienne) est en train d�tre questionn�e par plusieurs
sp�cialistes. La discussion tourne autour de la nature du terme qui,
selon la th�orie traditionnelle, est un symbole qui permet la
d�nomination universelle des concepts des domaines de
sp�cialit�. Toutefois, selon la plus r�cente approche en
terminologie, la terminologie descriptive revendique que le terme est
un signe linguistique et que pour cette raison il appartient � un
syst�me linguistique donn�. Selon cette approche, les terminologies
ne seraient pas universelles, mais elles appartiendraient � une
langue, donc � un discours sp�cialis�. Certains faits linguistiques
(relations s�mantiques) corroborent cette approche tels que la
polys�mie et la synonymie.


Mesa redonda:
Terminologia Tradicional & Terminologia Descritiva

A validade dos princ�pios da Terminologia Tradicional (wusteriana)
vem sendo h� algum tempo questionada por v�rios especialistas. A
discuss�o principal gira em torno da natureza do termo que seria,
segundo a teoria cl�ssica, equivalente a um s�mbolo, da� ent�o a
possibilidade de uma denomina��o universal dos conceitos das �reas
de especialidades. No entanto, uma nova perspectiva de an�lise do
termo veiculada pela Terminologia Descritiva afirma que o termo � um
signo lingu�stico e, portanto, vincula-se a um determinado sistema
lingu�stico. Desse modo, as terminologias n�o seriam universais, mas
pr�prias a uma l�ngua, portanto a uma sociedade. Alguns fatos
necessariamente lingu�sticos corroboram essa perspectiva, tais como a
polissemia e a sinon�mia terminol�gica.
