Frame-based Terminology: semantic framing and database structure
Dr Olga Koreneva, from the Pablo de Olavide University, conceived a specific semantic scheme, called event, to represent concepts related to diseases graphically and she is now working on an event for complementary alternative medicine.
This cognitive approach to terminology, called Frame-based Terminology, focuses on the potential semantic and syntactic behaviour of specialized knowledge units in a text.
You can find more information about the semantic framing in the article Frame-based Terminology.
The semantic structures conceived by Dr Koreneva are displayed in the following schemes.
The first one is the COVID-19 event, created by TermCoord and drawing inspiration from the Disease event.
If you would like to know more details on the process used for the creation of the COVID-19 event, please check the blog post

YourTerm MED addresses the diastratic variation of medical terminology and its aim is to develop a tool that can help health-care professionals and patients to communicate and understand each other, for example during emergency humanitarian situations.
