Brouillage des frontières, rencontres des domaines : quelles conséquences pour l’enseignement de la terminologie et de la traduction spécialisée ?

Abstract : The constant surge of new knowledge domains tends to bring about major changes in traditional disciplinary boundaries. The domination of English makes ESP a privileged vehicle for these evolutions, forcing researchers and teachers to reconsider the concepts of domain, specialty, and terminology. Dictionaries created by specialised translation Master’s students provide evidence of the way these shifts impact the way advanced students analyze terminology, and call into question conventional teaching of terminology. This study addresses the consequences of the emergence of domains which combine several fields of knowledge. One example is the field of “planned obsolescence”, in which the contradictory notions of obsolescence management techniques and sustainable development are equally important. This type of hybridation has an impact on such basic concepts as “term”, “definition”, “collocation”, and the graphic representation of a terminological structure. These shifts modify the vision of specialised language and the way it is taught, and move the focus from territories to communities The very idea of discourse communities needs reexamining in this light.
