Verbal and Non verbal Representation in Terminology Proceedings of the TOTh 2013 Workshop

Abstract : It is a great pleasure to announce an international workshop on the theme of representation of terms and definitions of concepts in verbal as well as nonverbal forms. The ISO standard 704 "Terminology work – principles and methods" mentions three types of designation – terms, appellations and symbols. The last of these constitutes an important aid in international communication by transferring the information directly. The ISO standard 10241-1 “Terminological entries – General requirements and examples of presentation” explicitly mentions the nonverbal representations used instead of definitions. An illustration is sometimes more explicit than a language definition. Verbal and nonverbal representations of concepts show up in a number of terminologies of scientific and technical disciplines. This is especially the case for the activities at the The Danish National Research Foundation’s Centre for Textile Research which show that verbal and nonverbal representations have been used for several millennia. In the field of weaving, in particular, weaving representations for basic and derived weaves are configured in diagrams and logograms, thus collapsing designation and definition. A good example of this phenomenon is the basic weave ”tabby” which can be designated by figures, codes and terms. The TOTh workshop will begin with a presentation of the work of the The Danish National Research Foundation’s Centre for Textile Research about the verbal and nonverbal configurations in the field of textiles, and a presentation on the concept of design as a theoretical framework by the University of Southern Denmark, SDU.
