Abstract

Specific terminology in modern studies, in humanities as well as in other sciences, is one of the issues which are more and more frequently discussed by academics. The reason is that disciplines expand their scope of analysys lately and as a result, new fields appear. They claim for specific terminology, describing at least the basic concepts of their subject of study, which is often borrowed from the common vocabulary or from other fields. This matter becomes more complex when researchers from different fields or speaking different language codes/cultures gather to exchange expertise and communicate. These are the core arguments underlying the design of a Glossary so as to reduce eventual terminological ambiguities (amphisemies) by defining complex terms. This is meant to provide a meaningful support to the work of educators taking part on the experimental stage of the P.IN.O.K.I.O. Project, as well as of everyone wishing to use it in the future. The Glossary comprises a selection of terms not only in domains like Anthropology or Culture but also in Children’s Literature, Linguistics, Pedagogy and e-Learning. The terms selected are of special significance and value in the structure, organization and implementation of the P.IN.O.K.I.O Project. Hence, the choice of the terms and their scope were devised bearing in mind the extent of the Glossary and the project’s goals and participants. As for formatting and writing style, the Glossary follows the modern international reference style which is related to the crisscrossing domains as indicated below. The Bibliography is comprehensive and user-friendly as it intends to be a suggestion for further research and personal study.
