Title: A Cognitive Linguistics View of Terminology and Specialized Language
Edited By: Pamela Faber
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/view/product/181211?format=G&rskey=k2u96W
Series Title: Applications of Cognitive Linguistics [ACL] 20
Description:

This book explores the importance of Cognitive Linguistics for specialized
language within the context of Frame-based Terminology (FBT). FBT uses
aspects of Frame Semantics, coupled with premises from Cognitive Linguistics
to structure specialized domains and create non-language-specific knowledge
representations. Corpus analysis provides information regarding the syntax,
semantics, and pragmatics of specialized knowledge units. Also studied is the
role of metaphor and metonymy in specialized texts. The first section explains
the purpose and structure of the book. The second section gives an overview of
basic concepts, theories, and applications in Terminology and Cognitive
Linguistics. The third section explains the Frame-based Terminology approach.
The fourth section explores the role of contextual information in specialized
knowledge representation as reflected in linguistic contexts and graphical
information. The final section highlights the conclusions that can be derived
from this study.
