The "endless" path from Knowledge to Language and vice versa via Terminology


Terminology (science) is neither linguistics, nor translation, nor physics, nor chemistry, nor any other individual subject field.
Terminology deals with the interface (the common boundary of communication) between knowledge and language in any subject field.

Terminology (terms) does not only concern the linguist, nor the translator, nor the physicist, nor the chemist, nor any other special scientist.
Terminology is the interface between the human mind and the world; consequently it concerns everybody!

There is no human without language.

There is no language without knowledge.

There is no knowledge without terms.

There are no terms without concepts.

There are no concepts without the human mind,

which uses them to mirror the real world, but also to create imaginary ones.
