Letter Writing and Language Change

Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts

This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."

Title: Application-Driven Terminology Engineering
Edited By: Fidelia Ibekwe-SanJuan

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.
