Descripción
This paper deals with the procedure to identify collocations with adjectives in a specialized subject field context. It has been identified that for any kind of inguistic production in this special language discourse, the percentage of usage of such collocations is very high compared to the amount of new information and terminological expressions. Since terminology is mainly understood as a technical noun or noun group, pre-moddification of such terminology is syntactically performed by adjectives. In this specialized discourse there seems to be a trend for some particular technical nouns or noun groups to be pre-modified by certain adjectives restrictively. Consecuently it should be assumed that in order to convey specialized meaning it is not only necessary to properly select terminology but also to combine adequatly these fixed expressions with support specilaied information as well. For this purpose it as been used a corpus of specialized subject field texts, some of them parallel texts,i.e., English and Spanish, and some other Engish-written texts and Spanish-written texts. Some mot frequently lexical occurrances formed by an adjective and its collocates have been identified. An attempt to identify these adjectives morphological and syntactical features has been made as well as some insights of their semantic behaviour.
