Special Issue of Terminology 18:1 (2012). Neology in Specialized Communication

The study of neonyms makes it possible to measure the vitality of a
language. In today's globalized society, the contrastive studies of
different languages often give very valuable information about the degree
of balance, harmonization or interference between different languages.

The contributors to this special issue will be asked to explain how they
approach specialized neologisms in the context of specialized
communication, giving a tentative answer to the following questions:
- Are the everyday, common words useful to denominate new specialized concepts?
- Can specialized neologisms be directly transferred from one language to
- What resources are available in languages to give a name to a new concept?
- What is the best neonym for a new reality?
- How can the needs for neonymy be detected?
- How can a neologism of a specific field be detected?
- What are the most useful tools to automate the processing of specialized
neologisms? etc.

The editors invite submissions that present innovative research work or
articles addressing a central conceptual, theoretical, and/or empirical
investigation on specialized neology. Authors may want to deal with one or
several of the following issues:
1. Theoretical approaches to neonymy or specialized neology.
2. Descriptive and contrastive studies in specialized neology.
3. Social and sociolinguistic aspects of specialized neology.
4. Communicative and cognitive aspects of specialized neology.
5. Neologisms and specialized fields.
6. Specialized neology in language planning.
7. New tools for neonymy work in terminology.
8. Neology in professional settings.

Papers should be written with Word and comprise between 20-30 pages. More
information on formatting requirements can be found on the John Benjamins
website (www.benjamins.com). English is preferred (80% of the contents),
but submissions in French, Spanish or German will be considered. Each issue
of Terminology contains up to six articles.

Please send submissions to: termneologygmail.com
