MAGANA CARRILLO, Irma. A language for competitive tourism on the century XXI. El periplo sustentable [online]. 2016, n.31, 00011. ISSN 1870-9036.

This paper presents a documentary research project that supports the need for a conceptual frame of reference to establish a specialized language for competitive tourism and proposes it, understanding tourism as an area of autonomous study. The terminology used today in the field of tourism and in tourism activities is based almost exclusively on economy. This evidences the urgent need to constitute its autopoietic conceptualization, necessary when “doing” and “being” Quality, to satisfy the client-tourist and in this sense increase and strengthen productivity, and competitiveness towards sustainability.

Keywords : specialized language; conceptual framework; tourism; quality; competitiveness.
