Index : Term



A designation of a defined concept in a special language by a linguistic expression (ISO 1987).

Terms or terminological units can include single word terms, multiword terms, or even text chunks treated as equivalent textual units. Each term is assigned its own terminology information group (tig) or nested terminology information group (ntig) in its respective language section of a term entry. According to the principle of term autonomy, each term can be accompanied by full documentation. All terms included in a terminological entry are considered to be equivalent or synonymous by virtue of their inclusion in that entry, although detailed information concerning degree of equivalence or detailed notes (transfer comments) can be added in order to provide more detailed information.
