How Researchers in Specialised Varieties of English Can Benefit from Focusing on Terms
Acknowledgements I wish to express my thanks to the many people who supported me throughout the development of this book. I would particularly like to thank the anonymous reviewers of the manuscript for their insightful comments and suggestions; Maria Teresa Cabré, Rita Temmerman and John Humbley for their support from the very beginning; Rosalind Greenstein who so carefully proof read the manuscript; my colleagues Jacqueline Percebois, Shaeda Isani, Marie-Hélène Fries and Michel Van der Yeught, for their friendly support and my doctoral students Fanny Domenec, Caroline Peynaud and Séverine Wozniak who regularly expressed their interest in hearing how the project was progressing. They unknowingly helped me to go forward as I could not let them see when I had moments of doubt as to its viability. Thanks also to the editorial staff of Peter Lang for their help and support; I owe a personal debt of gratitude to Adrian Stähli, com- missioning editor and production manager at Peter Lang’s, and of course to Maurizio Gotti, the director of the Linguistic Insights series. I am especially grateful to my unfailingly patient, understand- ing, supportive and loving husband Marc, for accepting to give up so many family weekends, as well as winter, spring and summer holidays and to our daughter Anne-Sophie for her joie de vivre and reassuring optimism. I can truly say that this book could never have been written without them.
