This course introduces terminology as a field of study
with its own principles and methodology. Students learn to identify terminological units and differentiate between various types of terms from the point of view of form, function, meaning and origin. In the process of creating terminological records for the purposes of interpreting and translation, students analyze various types of definitions, contexts and cross-references. Students learn to conduct independent research on general and specialized resources in English and their language of specialty in their chosen fields, working with a variety of hard copies as well as electronic texts and Internet resources.
