Conference given by Professor Melania Cabezas García

We have the pleasure to announce the following conference, given by Professor Melania Cabezas García, from the Lexicon Research Group (Department of Translation and Interpreting of the University of Granada) :

Denominative variation in translation and its representation in terminological resources  

In scientific and technical communication, multiword terms are the most frequent type of lexical units. Rendering them in another language is not an easy task due to their cognitive complexity, the proliferation of different forms, and their unsystematic representation in terminographic resources. This often results in a broad spectrum of translations for multiword terms, which also foment term variation since they consist of two or more constituents. This presentation will show the significant degree of term variation typical of multiword terms, which responds to different characteristics. These can be used to establish a set of criteria according to which term variants should be selected, organized and described in terminological knowledge bases.

On Thursday 19 October 2023, 12:30 pm - 13:45 pm, room 2130 (Uni Mail)
