Projects > YourTerm MARE > Concepts & Terminology

This is a sample of the concepts and terms we work with for YourTerm MARE:

Semantic framing and database structure

YourTerm MARE concerns various domains pertaining to the human event of fishing, that is, the process of extracting resources from the sea. Since multiple elements make up this process, we are currently conducting research in order to bring together several fields of maritime expertise. This will culminate in a thematic-specific database structure based on the theoretical foundations and practices of Frame-based Terminology.
