How Can Linguistics Help to Structure a Multidisciplinary Neo Domain such as Exobiology?
CLLE-ERSS, UMR 5263, CNRS and University of Toulouse
This chapter examines the contribution that corpus linguistics can make towards stabilising definitions within exobiology. By using the clues provided by natural language processing tools, linguists build an interpretation of contexts and try to show how the meaning is constructed, taking into account the different points of view of the disciplines involved in exobiology. Examples of contextualised interpretations are proposed.
