LSP in Colombia

Advances and challenges


Edited By Gabriel Quiroz Herrera and Pedro Patino Garcia

Studies in LSP in Colombia began in the 1990’s, mainly in the discipline of terminology. Since then, studies in translation, terminology, and LSP have spread out throughout the country. Many papers have been written since then in national and international journals by Colombian authors. This book comprises a set of 20 chapters derived from M.A. and Ph.D. theses of Colombian authors written in Austria, Chile, Colombia, France, Norway, and Spain. The multidisciplinary view of this book includes scholars from translation, linguistics, computer engineering, philosophy, and library and information science. These chapters deal with linguistic, phraseological, terminological, didactic, and textual issues related to terminology, translation, corpus linguistics, and computational linguistics from the Universidad de Antioquia, Universidad de Medellín, Universidad Nacional de Medellín, Universidad Autónoma de Manizales, Universidad EAFIT, Wake Forest University, NHH Norwegian School of Economics, Université Grenoble Alpes, and Université Paris VII.

On Premodified Terms in Five Specialized Dictionaries: Gabriel Quiroz, Alejandro Arroyave



On Premodified Terms in Five Specialized Dictionaries3


Premodification is a syntactic function of the noun phrase (NP) and can have several types of modifiers: adjectives (Adj) as in example 1, past and present participles (PP/PresP) and as in examples 2 and 3, and a noun (N) as in example 4.

(1)total one human genomic DNA

(2)inherited mitochondrial DNA diseases

(3)circulating monoclonal protein

(4)vehicle control cell growth

Equally, other lexical categories can be found and even some grammar structures in the premodification. In example 5, there is an adverbial phrase which, as a whole, modifies the head of the noun phrase. In example 6, it is a verbal form as premodifier, and in example 7, a prepositional phrase.

(5)darkly stained apical dendrites ← 137 | 138 →
