Meeting Description:

Centrum voor vaktaal en Communicatie of Erasmushogeschool Brussel and
Centre de recherché en linguistique appliquée of the Institut supérieur de
traducteurs et interprètes (Haute École de Bruxelles) have the pleasure of
inviting you to a seminar on “The Dynamics of Terms in Specialised
Communication”. The seminar will take place on the 23rd of April 2010 at
Free University of Brussels (2 Pleinlaan, 1050 Brussels), which is home to
the department of Applied Linguistics of Erasmushogeschool Brussel since 2008.

Recent work in cognitive sciences attacks the idea that conceptual
knowledge can be stored and retrieved. It has been shown that knowing
cannot be separated from context, experience, culture and language.
Cognition is believed to be a dynamic and negotiable process in which the
creative potential of language plays an important role. The question for
the seminar is how the insight concerning the dynamics of cognition has its
impact on the study of terminology and special language as observed in
multilingual and intercultural special language communication. Contributors
to the seminar will be asked to explain how they deal with the dynamic
aspects of terminology and special language communication.

What position do the speakers take towards the dynamics of cognition, the
role of representation, embodied understanding, situatedness, cultural
context? What kinds of research do they undertake concerning cognitive
dynamics, special communication and terminology? What methodologies do they
apply? What types of problems are encountered in a specific communicative
setting (e.g. multilingual, intercultural,…)? How are these problems tackled?
