  • Combination of concept-based and lexico-semantic approaches in terminological descriptions
  • Modelling of lexical relationships (paradigmatic and syntagmatic), specialized meaning, sense distinctions, argument structure, multilingual terminological data
  • Implementation of lexical descriptions of terms in terminological databases, dictionaries, ontologies and other formal knowledge representations
  • Use of lexical descriptions of terms in computer applications
  • Automatic or semi-automatic identification of lexical relationships,
    collocations and other lexical aspects of terms in specialized corpora
