In the current study we argue that working in terminology implies not only developing corpora analysis but also promoting tacit knowledge elicitation techniques through interactional and discursive negotiation between terminologist and domain specialist. Therefore, interactional strategies between terminologist and domain specialist and knowledge elicitation procedures deserve particular research attention. To our mind, the key to concept-based terminological work is to carry out a concept analysis of data gathered from a specialised text corpora combined with an elicitation process of the tacit knowledge and concept-oriented discursive negotiation. In other words, we support productivity resulting from an autonomous action-reflection procedure, both introspective and collaborative, one in which the terminologist will become a conceptualiser, decision-maker and interventionist in every phase of the knowledge representation process through language.
