Query:   I will be involved in a project aimed at developing basic scientific
terminology in Amerindian languages of Venezuela for use in primary and
secondary schools. I am looking for references and other sources about the
process of lexicon development. I have conducted fruitless searches in the
WWW. I am fully aware that an understanding of the structure of the
language is crucial for creating new terms (for example, derivational
morphology and compounding), but I need something like general guidelines,
theory of lexicon creation, and information about current and past projects
in this area. Thank you.
