Natalia GOBJILA

Abstract


This paper aims at examining the notion of synonymy in the specialized languages, and how it is perceived in relation with the principle of univocity of designation and concept, fundamental for the study of terminology. The analysis of the provided examples is intended to illustrate the occurrence and distribution of synonyms in the terminology from the domain of biomedical engineering and the role of the phenomenon in the specialized communication in this particular domain.    

 

FENOMENUL SINONIMIEI ÎN TERMINOLOGIA DIN DOMENIUL BIOINGINERIEI MEDICALE

În lucrare ne propunem să examinăm noțiunea de sinonimie în limbajele specializate și modul în care este percepută în raport cu principiul univocității dintre desemnare și concept, principiu fundamental pentru studiul terminologiei. Analiza exemplelor furnizate are scopul de a ilustra manifestarea și distribuirea sinonimelor în terminologia din domeniul bioingineriei medicale și rolul fenomenului în comunicarea specializată în acest domeniu.

Keywords
