LESS Can Indeed Be More: Linguistic and Conceptual Challenges in the Age of Interoperability

Abstract : The advent of the Semantic Web and, more recently, of the Linked Data initiative, has paved the way for new perspectives and opportunities in Terminology , namely regarding the operationalization of terminological products. Within the biomedical domain, changes have been substantial in the past decades and at their heart stand the current challenges regarding the production, use, storage and dissemination of medical data, information, and knowledge. In a context where biomedical terminological resources are becoming increasingly concept-oriented, terminology work should reflect a double dimension (both linguistic and conceptual) that may, in turn, support the aspired operationalization and in-teroperability in this field. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to present a case study, based around the concept of , in which a methodology anchored in Terminology's double dimension aims to contribute to the enrichment of the Systematized Nomenclature of Medicine-Clinical Terms (SNOMED CT).
