The making of the definitions is the most complex step in terminological research which aims to compile specialized dictionaries, for the good ones are evaluated mainly as to the quality of their definitions. As there are differences between terms and words, there are also differences between defining them. While the lexicographic definition specifies and describes the meanings of words as language units, giving all their possible senses, the terminological definition (TD) identifies and describes terms only in reference to the specific conceptual system to which they belong. Therefore, the TD is the object of this Master s study. Our undergraduate experience in terminological research in the Group of Studies and Research in Terminology (GETerm), revealed several difficulties associated with the TD process. The defining method was changed, adapted, extended, and revised to handle the challenges of the research. From that experience, we came to a set of methodological procedures to aid the TD routines in any domain knowledge. Accordingly, this Master s dissertation research aims to systematize those procedures to be implemented into a Web-based, computational environment (E-Termos) to aid research groups in their terminological endeavor.
