Abstract
The Bilingual Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Metaphors and Metonymies [Spanish-English, English-Spanish] covers a wide array of metaphoric and metonymic terms from engineering and other related scientific and technical fields. It fills a gap in scientific and technical language as it offers an updated version of most frequently used metaphoric lexical units in English and Spanish. The dictionary contains over 23,125 entries: 11,000 Spanish-English and 12,125 English-Spanish. The lexical units included in this work have been selected from over 50 relevant [Spanish-English, English-Spanish] specialized dictionaries and specific vocabularies. Its novelty lies in the compilation of the lexical items that have a contrasted metaphorical or metonymic sense within scientific and technical domains into one work. Contextualization of metaphorical terms has been crucial in determining their metaphorical use.
