Le vocabulaire technique en latin médiéval, entre mythe et réalité

Abstract : How can lexicographers deal with words relevant to a field of study in which they do not have expertise ? As an attempt to answer this question, we examined the concept of „specialisation” : what is what we commonly call „technical language”, and did there exist such a notion in medieval Latin ? As a result of the present study, three main conclusions can be drawn. Firstly, the same terms were employed to account for the differences between general and „special” languages. Secondly, the only groups of „technical” speakers mentioned in our texts are exclusively related to the education. Thirdly, our confused lexicographic practice results in serious difficulties of digitising medieval Latin dictionaries.
