Terminology in Everyday Life contains a selection of fresh and
interesting articles by prominent scholars and practitioners in the field
of terminology based on papers presented at an international terminology

to everyone interested in the theory and practice of terminology, from
terminologists to computer specialists to lecturers and students.
