Lecture on "Project Ko[Gloss]: Glossaries of Word Groups for the Acquisition of LSP"

Agnese Dubova, Egita Proveja

Contemporary society is characterized by its aim to become a knowledge society. Interdisciplinary projects and global cooperation are increasing in popularity in a knowledge based society. However, language diversity and differences in the use of LSP may be an obstacle. That is why dictionaries and LSP lexicons are not satisfactory. Sometimes glossaries are made up, but the practice shows that an effective glossary is complicated to be worked out. In the two-year project „Glossaries of Word Groups for the Acquisition of LSP" Ko[Gloss] an applicable know-how is elaborated. Partners from the University of Tartu in Estonia, Ventspils University College in Latvia, and Vilnius University in Lithuania participate in the project being coordinated by University of Duisburg-Essen in Germany. The project Ko[Gloss] studies parallel LSP glossaries in the Estonian, Latvian, Lithuanian and German languages by using simple means and techniques. The paper aims to introduce the audience to project objectives and work methods.
