Linguistic Digital Data in Terminology and Lexicography

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventParticipation in workshop, seminar, course


Course lectured within the Lisbon Summer School in Linguistics 2021 programme.

Terminological and lexicographical work aim to compile and systematize linguistic and conceptual information and make it available to end users – which can be both humans and machines – ideally in a format that can be used, reused, and shared. In this context, standards and formalization play a major role. Both subject fields have become central disciplines in numerous areas of knowledge, ranging from eHealth to Digital Humanities, passing through language teaching and base resources development for Computational Linguistics, Natural Language Processing, and Artificial Intelligence. However, although Terminology and Lexicology/Lexicography deal with lexical units – words and terms –, they take up different perspectives in what concerns theories, methods, and end results. The main goals of the seminar are, thus, the confrontation of approaches and the opening to the diversity of work and research developed in the areas of Terminology, Lexicography and Computational Lexical Semantics, and the demonstration of how linguistic digital data are conceived, treated and used in these fields.
