Les néologismes techniques dans le traité Della cultura degli orti e giardini (1588-1596) de Giovanvettorio Soderini

Abstract : Technical neologisms in Giovanvettorio Soderini’s horticultural treatise Della cultura degli orti e giardini, written between 1588 and 1596, demonstrate the highly scientific and linguistic level of Italian agronomists at the end of the Renaissance. It’s highly likely that Soderini drew most of the neologisms from the popular country language (i.e. tenerume, meaning the “bud” of a plant), or he created some others to define new natural phenomena (i.e. aovato, meaning an oval leaf). In any case, he is the “inventor” of modern horticultural terminology. Some words show that cultural exchanges between France and Italy were very frequent.
