Concept Management for Terminology: A Knowledge Engineering Approach


Terminology has both a linguistic and a conceptual dimension, and the general goal of our research is to develop a computer aid to facilitate the latter. Concept management is crucial to all stages of terminology work as it is practiced today and will become even more so for the next generation of term banks. The central argument of this paper is that concept management technology should draw on developments in knowledge engineering, since knowledge engineers and terminologists share a number of fundamental conceptual problems. As an illustration, we describe the work underway at the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory of the University of Ottawa, where a knowledge engineering tool for terminology applications is under active development.
