PRECISION AGRICULTURE: TERMINOLOGICAL ISSUES PUBLISHEDGeorgeta Raţă, Anica Perković
The purpose of this study is to show in what measure language dictionaries can be of help in better understanding GPS terminology. This study is part of a wider project of studying specialized languages belonging to different agronomic subjects. The type of approach is lexicographical. The study of GPS terminology is at its beginnings, as GPS technology itself has only recently emerged as scientific branch. The limits of the research are those caused by the absence of linguistic tools specific to the field of GPS. The practical implications of the study are dictated by the purpose of the study itself. The originality of the paper lies in the fact that this is the first time that someone approaches the problem of the English of Precision agriculture in general and that of GPS technology in particular within the study of ESP in Romania.
