Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: Application-Driven Terminology Engineering
Edited By: Fidelia Ibekwe-SanJuan
Anne Condamines
M. Teresa Cabré Castellví

Series Title: Benjamins Current Topics 2
Description:

A common framework under which the various studies on terminology
processing can be viewed is to consider not only the texts from which the
terminological resources are built but particularly the applications
targeted. The current book, first published as a Special Issue of
Terminology (11:1, 2005), analyses the influence of applications on term
definition and processing. Two types of applications have been identified:
intermediary and terminal applications (involving end users). Intermediary
applications concern the building of terminological knowledge resources
such as domain-specific dictionaries, ontologies, thesaurus or taxonomies.
These knowledge resources then form the inputs to terminal applications
such as information extraction, information retrieval, science and
technology watch or automated book index building. Most of the applications
dealt with in the book fall into the first category. This book represents
the first attempt, from a pluridisciplinary viewpoint, to take into account
the role of applications in the processing of terminology.
