Conference “The terminology of the environment in the Brazilian national press: a study of the lexical family of forest regeneration”

By Mariana Giacomini Botta
Postdoctoral researcher at the Observatoire de linguistique Sens-Texte (OLST)
Université de Montréal

Abstract :
This presentation is part of a larger study that aims to analyze
environmental terms appearing in journalistic texts. We are interested
in the mechanisms of term "migration" implemented by journalists when
they try to "translate" the words of this LSP. We propose a lexical-
semantic study of terms related to forest regeneration, which have been
extracted from the Brazilian newspapers "Folha de S. Paulo","O Globo"
and "O Estado de São Paulo", between August and September 2012.

The talk will be given in French, but questions may be asked in English.
