Workshop 2013: Verbal and nonverbal representation in terminology
Copenhagen – Denmark 8th November 2013
The Centre for Textile Research in Copenhagen employs terminology work in epigraphy, texts and iconography as sources for the delimiting and designation of concepts. International standards, such as ISO 704: Terminology work – Principles and methods, indicate that definitions can be replaced by diagrams, and terms by codes. Another useful perspective in this regard is ISO 24156: Graphic notations for concept modeling in terminology work.
Global consensus is not new in the field of textiles – non-verbal representation has been integrated and used in various script systems for the past four thousand years to convey the qualities of cloth. Representing a concept by using an illustration is universal, but the effectiveness of these signs is dependent on a shared understanding. What is the situation in other disciplines?
