Languages of publication
Researchers striving at establishing the academic status of a science need, inter alia, to delin-eate the boundaries of their area of interest, point to its object(s) of research, outline the methodology and determine its language. This process equally applies to (meta)lexicography and (meta)terminogra-phy, which are yet to prove their scientific standing. This paper attempts to pinpoint the methodological features of metaterminography and suggest a framework for a systematic study of terminographic works. The point of departure for the detailed discussions undertaken in this article are the general principles of the methodology of sciences. The work also points to the fundamental methods used in metalexicography and metaterminography and focuses on the methodological description of one of the methods used in systematic dictionary research, i.e. the terminographic analysis.
