El Lexico Tecnico Espanol E Ingles: Linguistica y Humanismo (Spanish/English Lexicon: Linguistics and Humanism).
This manual, written in Spanish, contains a linguistic study to show that all sciences, whether economic or social, technical or humanistic in nature have a direct impact on our terminology. Starting with general linguistic considerations on technical terms in both English and Spanish, the study advances to semantics used in symbolic language. It examines metaphors, acronyms, and the etymology of selected words in both English and Spanish and the interconnectedness between both languages. In addition to scientific and theoretical aspects, which concludes with a study on lexicographical issues, all aforementioned findings are corroborated with a technological or practical application.
