Title: New Approaches to Specialized English Lexicology and Lexicography
Edited By: Isabel Balteiro

This book gathers some of the latest approaches to Lexicology and
Lexicography, focusing on English for Specific Purposes, but also on the
study of lexical constellations and translation. It presents a multifaceted
insight on current trends and includes articles that explore lexical issues
in diverse and not so well-known fields such as the language of cinema,
fashion, tourism, or even comics. Other chapters in this volume examine the
vocabulary of well-established professional languages like the language of
law, medicine and business, by revealing leading-edge perspectives on
topics as diverse as translation, word-formation, cultural clashes, or
lexical selection. Key issues on learning and teaching are also considered,
as part of a long tradition in the study of professional and academic

This work proposes a strong emphasis on lexis and terminology and
highlights the fundamental core of the definition and analysis of
specialized languages. This publication intends to embrace current trends
in the study of specialized vocabulary and terminology from the perspective
of both Lexicology and Lexicography as well as to open new possibilities
for future research.
