KRIEGER, Maria da Graça. Terminology revisited. DELTA [online]. 2000, vol.16, n.2, pp.209-228. ISSN 1678-460X.

The purpose of this paper is to investigate the current scenery of critical reflexions on applied and theoretical researches in Terminology. In this respect, the change from the normative paradigm, considered to be the very founder of the classic terminology, to the pragmatic - communicative approach of specialized languages is then caracterized, and also the main items pointed out by the revisionary aspects are identified. At the same time, the assumptions and proppositions to the establishment of a "new" terminology theory in the light of the functioning of language have been discussed. All these questionings lead to the possibility of a textual and discoursive treatment of the techno-scientific terms, with relevant implications to the production of thematic reference works.

Keywords : Terminology; Lexico-terminological unit; Specialized languages; Critical revision.
