Terminological counselling is a service intended for the expert community public facing specific naming problems. A completely new concept may not been named in the Slovenian language yet or there is an existing concept for which there are several synonyms, which according to field experts, requires systematic unification or clarification on the most appropriate term.
When elaborating terminological answers, we follow the basic terminological principles, which means that on the basis of the information provided about the terminological problem, we recommend which solution would be the most appropriate from the point of view of the terminological theory. Therefore, it is very important to get as much information as possible about the term, especially about what it denotes. In addition, information about the texts in which the term occurs, possible existing naming solutions (when several terms denote the same concept) and foreign-language equivalents are also very useful.
In order to be able to prepare a terminological answer that will really help you, please fill in the fields of the form as accurately as possible. The fields marked with an asterisk are required. We will not publish your name and surname, and will send you the answer within a few days to the e-mail address you provided in the form. Questions and answers will also be published on the website so that other users can read them. Answers to general language questions can be found on the Language Counselling site.
