Lexical Semantics for Terminology: An introduction explores the interconnections between lexical semantics and terminology. More specifically, it shows how principles borrowed from lexico-semantic frameworks and methodologies derived from them can help understand terms and describe them in resources. It also explains how lexical analysis complements perspectives primarily focused on knowledge. Topics such as term identification, meaning, polysemy, relations between terms, and equivalence are discussed thoroughly and illustrated with examples taken from various fields of knowledge.
This book is an indispensable companion for those who are interested in words and work with specialized terms, e.g. terminologists, translators, lexicographers, corpus linguists. A background in terminology or lexical semantics is not required since all notions are defined and explained. This book complements other textbooks on terminology that do not focus on lexical semantics per se.

Table of Contents
“This book is a valuable complement to other approaches to terminology. It revisits terminology from a lexico-semantic perspective and provides some new insights: the notion of ‘term’ is extended to cover open class units other than nouns, and criteria are accordingly developed for identifying and selecting terms. Polysemy of terms is also handled with reliable criteria, and relations between the multiple meanings are discussed. In addition, the new perspective has diversified relations in terminology and increases the knowledge of them.”
“This book might serve as a guide to what lexical knowledge teachers should impart to ESP learners.”
