About this product
- DescriptionBased on original research and vel concepts, this book investigates the nature and use of termilogy from linguistic and applied viewpoints. Throughout, problems with termilogy, such as overuse by teachers and cases of synymy and polysemy, are considered and solutions are offered. Part One looks firstly at some basic concepts, then draws important distinctions between pedagogic and scientific termilogy, and between transparent, opaque and iconic terms, before examining the historical, lexical and grammatical nature of terms. Part Two attempts to estimate the value and relevance of termilogy in language teaching and describes the use and kwledge of termilogy in various language-teaching-related constituencies: learners, teachers, textbooks, grammars and research. It concludes with a discussion of the criteria for evaluating terms and an analysis of terms used in ELT.
