Workshop 2019: Term Formation
Dublin, Ireland, 29th November 2019
Foras na Gaeilge
Often neglected in discourse on terminology work, the study of term formation principles, methods, approaches and styles within a given language or languages yields rich insights into how languages behave in relation to designating concepts, especially in specialized domains. Differing behaviour is particularly evident when comparing terminology of languages from quite different language families. And approaches to term formation often excite animated debate within language communities – how terms are received or viewed by users can sometimes produce contradictory results.
Thus, we invite interested parties to a one-day workshop to explore the landscapes of term formation within and across languages. Given the influx of terminology from English into other languages, are there things we could learn from one another about how new terms are formed in our various languages?
