Our research focus is on several issues related to the study of special language in general and terminology in particular, such as:

  • application-oriented terminology analysis
  • dynamic, ontologically-underpinned terminological resources (i.e. termontological resources)
  • metaphors
  • multilingual neology creation
  • ontologies
  • terminological variation
  • terminology and cognition
  • terminology engineering software (using natural language processing technology)
  • terminology harmonisation within the EU
  • understanding terminology in cognitive, linguistic and situational contexts
