CIRO, Lirian Astrid y VILA RUBIO, Neus. The terms of computing and the Internet in four Spanish-speaking countries: an sketch of an outreach strategy. Folios [online]. 2011, n.33, pp. 43-56. ISSN 0123-4870.
This essay focuses on the computing vocabulary, specifically vocabulary related to the Internet. The aim is to describe, out from the pragmatics, this vocabulary; we will focus on a strategy of popularization consisting on the presentation, from the enunciator, of the meaning of the terms. For this reason we take linguistic sources on the Internet that represent each one of the selected countries (Chile, Guatemala, Cuba and Spain) both from institutional field (university web pages) and massive media (digital press).
Palabras llave : Vocabulary on Internet and computing; science popularization; pragmatics; specialized languages; contrastive lexical study.
