ANGUIANO PENA, Gilberto  and  NAUMIS PENA, Catalina. Extraction of candidate terms from a corpus of nonspecialized, general language. Investig. bibl [online]. 2015, vol.29, n.67, pp.19-45. ISSN 2448-8321.

Linguistic phenomena associated with the analysis of document content and employed for the purpose of organization and retrieval are well-visited objects of study in the field of library and information science. Language often acts as a gatekeeper, admitting or excluding people from gaining access to knowledge. As such, the terms used in the scientific and technical language of research need to be kept up and their behavior within the domain examined. Documental content analysis of scientific texts provides knowledge of specialized lexicons and their specific applications, while differentiating them from common use in order to establish indexing languages. Thus, as proposed herein, the application of lexicographic techniques to documental content analysis of non-specialized language yields the components needed to describe and extract lexical units of the specialized language.

Keywords : Content Analysis; Term Extraction; Scientific Language; Corpus of General Language.
