Cognates as lexical choices in translation: Interference in space-constrained environments. Target 22:2, pp. 177–1932010.
This article approaches the issue of lexical choices in translation that result from the presence of cognates. It analyzes methodological issues regarding cognate production in translation tasks carried out in technical contexts. Specifically, we studied the presence of cognates as a lexical… read more | Article

Terminological information is a key element in the construction of a knowledge base. In order for a knowledge base to be useful to different users, terminological information should be extracted from corpora so as to reflect the different pragmatic nuances. Puertoterm is a knowledge base in the… read more | Article
Utilización de técnicas de corpus en la representación del conocimiento médico. Terminology 7:2, pp. 167–1982001.
Advances in corpus linguistics are of vital importance in terminology. The information obtained from corpora can be used to complement data already codified in dictionaries and termbases. In this article, we describe a framework of linguistic analysis that facilitates the extraction of conceptual… read more | Article
