Resumen

These abstract deals with the procedure to identify collocations with adjectives in a specialized subject field context. Furthermore it is intended to analyze them and propose a list of these collocations within the context of Information and Communication Technologies. The study will be done both for English and Spanish collocations. It has been identified that for any kind of linguistic production in this special language discourse, the percentage of usage of such collocations is very high compared to the amount of new information and terminological expressions. Since terminology is mainly understood as a technical noun or noun group, pre-modification of such terminology is syntactically performed by adjectives. In this specialized discourse there seems to be a trend for some particular technical nouns or noun groups to be pre-modified by certain adjectives restrictively. Consequently it should be assumed that in order to convey specialized meaning it is not only necessary to properly select terminology but also to combine adequately these fixed expressions which support specialized information as well. This present abstract aims at selecting adjective collocations and identifying their lexical functions of both English and Spanish occurrences. For this purpose it has been used a corpus of specialized subject field texts, some of them parallel texts, i.e. English version and the corresponding Spanish translated version, and other English-written texts and Spanish-written texts. Next the most frequently lexical occurrences formed by an adjective and its co-ocurrents (single technical noun or terminological group) have been identified. The next step is to find the definition of the adjective in the different lexicographical sources and finally attempt to identify its lexical function. The results are analyzed. This study has taken into account the research on phraseology made in Spain by Corpas (1996) as well as Mel’čuk’s Meaning-Text theory (1996). Particularly useful for this work it has been Marie-Claude L’Homme’s papers, especially the one entitled “Capturing the Lexical Structure in Special Subject Fields with Verbs and Verbal Derivatives. A Model for Specialized Lexicography” (2003).
