SGML Representation of Concept Systems: Identifying, Tagging and Retrieving Term-Concept Structures in Textual Context


The technical terminology used by the technical communicator or technical translator is encountered in texts. The terms in the texts are not randomly arranged but are used deliberately to invoke specific concept structures. SGML encoders and parsers can be used to identify and retrieve terminological structures in texts and help translators and terminologists better understand the relationship of terms in their textual context to abstract concept systems and knowledge organization.
