Words in the mind : an introduction to the mental lexicon by Jean Aitchison( Book )

5 editions published between 1987 and 1997 in English and German and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book deals with words, and how humans learn them, remember them, understand them, and find the ones they want. In brief, it discusses the structure and content of the human word-store or 'mental lexicon', with particular reference to the spoken language of native English speakers. Since the first edition of this book was published, work on the lexicon has exploded. This is reflected in this new edition, which contains substantial additions. Two new chapters have been added, and others have been considerably expanded. No chapter remains unaltered, and over 300 new references have been added as notes and suggestions for further reading. The book remains accessible in style, easy to read for both undergraduates and non-specialists

Thésaurus international de la terminologie relative aux réfugiés by Jean Aitchison( Book )

10 editions published between 1990 and 2003 in French and Undetermined and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Le Thesaurus international de la terminologie relative aux réfugiés est conçu pour faciliter la recherche et l'échange d'informations. Publié depuis 1988, le Thesaurus s'est avéré être une ressource essentielle pour les bibliothécaires et les professionnels de l'information. Toutefois, la nature spécialisée de la terminologie relative aux réfugiés et son évolution permanente ont pour conséquence la rapide caducité des données de la version imprimée. En 2002, la bibliothèque du Haut Commissariat des Nations Unies pour les Réfugiés et Forced Migration Online (FMO) ont engagé des discussions pour créer une version électronique du Thesaurus plus á même de répondre aux besoins des utilisateurs. Outil interactif et de recherche en ligne, le Thesaurus est maintenant disponible en anglais, en français et en espagnol. Nous espérons que la recherche des termes d'indexation sera plus efficace avec cette nouvelle version et qu'elle apportera une valeur ajoutée à la gestion des informations relatives aux réfugiés et aux personnes victimes de migration forcée."--Site web de l'éditeur
