Terminologie vulgarisée des énergies renouvelables

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this article, we discuss the lexicographic definition we are designing for the bilingual dictionary "Dicionário Português Europeu - Árabe Padrão", which work is in progress. Our specific purpose is the lexicographic definition of the vulgarized terms included in the nomenclature; those terms are related to Renewable Energies (RE). The inclusion in the dictionary nomenclature of a certain number of (scientific and technical) terms related to the field of RE, presupposes a methodology which allows us to incorporate and to assign them as adequate and compatible equivalents to each culture. The use of bilingual and comparable corpora are useful for the selection of contexts, the term collection and the reformulations of an adequate definition which is in accordance with the typology of our dictionary (general and bilingual) and the target audience (the general public): the bilingual lexicographical definition of vulgarization.
