Representation of Concepts

A concept can be represented in dictionaries either by a definition or by an illustration.
Illustrations are iconic units that reproduce the idea that individuals have of a certain class of objects in the real world.
Definitions are linguistic formulae that are aimed at describing the concept.

There are three types of definition:

Linguistic definitions
Ontological definitions
Terminological definitions
Each type of definition refers to the same reality seen from different perspective. The object of (1) – linguistic sign, of (2) – real world, of (3) – concept of a special subject field.

a linguistic and a terminological definition to define terms.


In the dictionaries we usually see a mixed process somewhere between a linguistic and a terminological definition to define terms.

Definition of Terminological Definition

A terminological definition is a descriptive statement that gives the essential characteristics of a concept as well as characteristics that distinguish the concept from all others.


Слайд 9

a given concept is, specific to a given subject field, and to position the concept

Terminological definition

Its purpose is to provide
a clear understanding of what a given concept is, specific to a given subject field, and to position the concept being defined within its concept system.
A good terminological definition responds to the need of subject specialists for identification of a new process, as well as to the need of translators for finding the equivalence of a term.

- concept systemsimplicity - concise, clearaffirmativeness - what the concept isnoncircularity - not back to

A number of principles must be followed when defining a term:

predictability - concept system
simplicity - concise, clear
affirmativeness - what the concept is
noncircularity - not back to the concept in question
absence of tautology - not a paraphrase of the term, but rather a description of the semantic features of the concept.

for describing a concept;extensional definition - enumerates ALL the specific objects that a concept represents;operational

Types of Definition

intensional definition - brings together ALL the characteristics required for describing a concept;
extensional definition - enumerates ALL the specific objects that a concept represents;
operational definition - provides a specific MEASUREMENT PROCESS whereby the concept is measured;
theoretical definition;
partitive definition;
contextual definition etc.

The majority of definitions are mixed definitions.

Recommendation of the so-called ideal terminological definition

A definition in terminology states the
genus proximum of the term to be defined and
the characteristics that distinguish this definiendum from coordinates that share the same genus.

Definiendum = definiens (genus + differentia)
Term to be defined = the concept class of category of the definiendum + characteristics.
rubber – elastic substance obtained from the coagulated milky juice of Hevea and Ficus species.
