New Year, New Section in my blog: Who is Who in Terminology?
After months and months of writing and researching on terminology and stumbling upon name after name of terminologists who have made great contributions to the field of terminology, I was curious to learn about them and thought it would be a good idea to start writing short biographies, not only to share the information with you but also to honor them and their work. We’ve all heard about Eugen Wüster, but what about the others? Do you know who they are and what their contribution was?
Well, if you don’t, you are in for a treat! Of course, I will start with Wüster, then going to what he considered to be “the four intellectual fathers of the terminological theory”: Ernest Dresen, Alfred Schlomann, Ferdinand de Saussure, and J. Edwin Holmstrom). And then some more like Helmut Felber and Ingrid Meyer. So, hopefully, as time permits, I will also be talking about the most contemporary ones. The information provided will depend on what is available on the Internet. If you know some important detail about them as I publish their bios, please add a comment and enlighten us. I will be tagging each of them under “Whoiswho”.
Starting this Monday… Wüster, of course, but, who will be next? Stay tuned!
P.S.: Needless to say, I will start posting about our other exciting regular topics. Just wait and see!
