Workshop: Information Retrieval in Terminology Using Lexical Knowledge Patterns

When access to increasingly bigger electronic corpora became possible in the nineties, British and Canadian terminologists in particular began taking an interest in certain linguistic cues pointing to specific terminological information. Manifested in text in predictable, recurring patterns, these linguistic cues are thus suitable for use in approaches to (semi-)automatic information retrieval. After about two decades, the workshop was organized in order to conduct a state-of-the-art discussion relating to this aspect of terminology research.

The workshop was supported by IITF (International Institute of Terminology Research.
