The Innovative Workings Behind How New Terms and Definitions are Adopted into Standards
Terminology sections or documents are critical resources for implementing a standard. However, users tend to take them for granted as just being part of the standard. But did you know:
- In what situation a word or phrase is selected to be defined as a term in the terminology document or section?
- What science is behind the definition of a term?
- How to find definitions of a term in various standards for free?
- How to relate the meaning of a term to the meaning in common dictionaries?
- The word or phrase will be not be adopted as a term if the intended meaning of the word or phrase is found in a dictionary?
- If not, you are not alone. New terms are not adopted easily in standards. It's a profound process - dull to some - yet largely unknown to people.
This presentation will shed light on the process and provide background information on:
- The ISO and Technical Committee structure
- Why some consider terminology work dull, yet profound
- The science behind a term
- Terminology principles
- Concept systems
- The difference between a glossary and a terminology document
