Abstract
Following the growing interest in Language and the Internet, this article tries to give a comprehensive overview of specialized phraseology and its multifaceted approaches in relation with the Internet.Starting from its pragmatic nature in specialized languages and analisyng the importance of these lexical combinations from the descriptive approaches to terminology, this paper describes the rich and varied landscape that specialized phraseology offers to LSP practitioners, terminologists, technical translators as well as communication mediators. These proffessionals require mastering not only the domain terminology but the contextualised use of specialized verbal collocations to produce technically-stylistic natural texts. However, specialized dictionaries do not often include this type of verbal phraseology that can provide the reader with linguistic knowledge as well as domain knowledge, nor do they include many of the metaphorical uses. So technical translators often take up the Internet as a reference corpus, with the advantages and disadvantages it may have as referring to lexical reliability and language use for translation purposes. Finally, some of the approaches to phraseology from the computational point of view are presented to illustrate and highlight the importance of these lexical combinations in natural language processing studies and applications.
