Pamela Faber, Granada
Dynamic Frames and Context Representation in Terminology

Terms acquire their meaning in context, more specifically within a frame in which their role in a process, activity, or event is highlighted as well as their relations to other concepts in the same frame. This is an important type of contextual information that is key to specialized knowledge understanding and acquisition. Frames underlie terminological definitions, concept modeling, and semantic networks. It goes without saying that framing specialized knowledge concepts not only means structuring individual term entries but also capturing the relationships between them. These relations reveal the most frequent combinations and activations of specialized knowledge units, which are indicative of some type of large-scale knowledge structure. The challenge is how frames at the syntactic, semantic and pragmatic level can be incorporated in the design of specialized knowledge resources.


Laura Giacomini, Heidelberg/Hildesheim
Ontologies and knowledge representation in terminology: integrating termbases with deep conceptual models

Among conceptual models applicable to terminology are ontologies, i.e. complex representations of shared and stipulated knowledge related to a certain domain. The use of ontologies, widely spread in Knowledge Engineering, has been inherited in relatively recent times by terminology, in which the traditional notion of extra-inguistic entity has merged with that of terminological concept. An ontology is thus a conceptual structure that holds together all terms of a specialised field, expressing their meanings and relations. Despite several intrinsic and procedural limitations, it constitutes a powerful means of conveying specialized knowledge. A terminology database can be integrated with different types of ontology, and ontologies can interface with any component of a termbase, among others with situational knowledge provided by frames.
