TitleLearning from Cognitive Science: Developing a New Approach to Classification in Terminology
AbstractClassification is fundamental to terminology. The classical theory of classification prevails, but cannot account for all cases. Terminologists may benefit from a more flexible approach. Part 1 explores the classical theory and some new approaches to classification developed in cognitive science. Part 2 introduces a multidimensional approach to classification. Part 3 examines how multidimensionality is relevant to terminology. Part 4 considers how terminologists currently deal with multidimensionality and suggests how they might better handle it.
