Terminology and Term – An interactive presentation

use mouse to open window picMaking Terminology fun is one of the goals of this blog. Sometimes it’s quite difficult to achieve, but I try to combine serious stuff with more fun stuff, when I can. Learning doesn’t have to be boring. So I have made this PowerPoint presentation on “terminology” and “term”.

I have selected the most common ones, otherwise it would be an endless list of words. I have provided the definitions I found in several sources, mostly TermTerm.org and ISO’s browsing platform, OBP, which are excellent sources when you are looking for definitions related to terminology.

I hope you find it useful and fun! Don’t forget to share in the social media! Enjoy!

The 11 Thinking Hats of Terminologist Eugen Wüster (Born October 10, 1898)

Wuster Bio (2)I thought it would be most appropriate to honor this Austrian terminologist on his 116 birthday (born October 10, 1898) by sharing some highlights about his prolific career. It is really hard to include all of his accomplishments in one little infographic, but it is also true that a long post would also be too exhausting to read, since his resume is extremely long. So, I have included just a few. They say a little goes a long way, and I hope you at least get an idea of what a great man Wüster was and his huge contribution to terminology.

The information was adapted from the PhD thesis:

The Reception of Eugen Wüster’s Work and the Development of Terminology by Ángela Campo, Département de linguistique et de traduction. Faculté des arts et des sciences, Université de Montréal. October 12 (pages 35-49).
