In defense of a pedagogical application of Specialized Lexicography/Terminography with the aid of Corpus Linguistics in ESP professor’s training

Sabrina Bonqueves Fadanelli


Teachers of ESP (English for Specific Purposes) in graduation/professionalizing technical courses face the challenge of having to work with specialized technical-scientific language in English with students of these areas. These teachers hardly ever receive any training regarding this scenario. This article argues in favor of including pedagogical practices and procedures from Specialized Lexicography and Terminography, under a textual perspective, combined with Corpus Linguistics, so that professors of ESP may rely on these skills to improve their teaching techniques regarding technical-scientific lexis.

Keywords: ESP professors; pedagogical lexicography/terminography; corpus linguistics.
