Abstract

“Surveying the field of terminology is like trying to read maps before satellites penetrated into every remote corner of the earth. [...] there are also some blank regions on each map on which we find printed: ‘These regions have not yet been explored’ or ‘Hic sunt leones’. [...]. The subject of concept classes and terminological relationships can be placed into this area of uncertainty, of wishful interpretation bordering on phantasy. Most mapmakers claim their existence, virtues and even usefulness, but few are agreed on their exact nature, way of operation or number because some relate their new findings to old patterns of knowledge which have proved useful in other areas of knowledge but are unsuitable here, while others jump ahead and describe relationships without having previously established what, specifically, is being related.” (Sager & Kageura 1994-95: 191)
