Diccionari de sociologia - Presentació

© Author and Publisher: Termcat, Centre for Terminology, 2019


The Diccionari de sociologia (‘Dictionary of Sociology’) contains more than 1200 terms from various fields of study of Sociology, slightly more than half of the terms that will be included in the entire dictionary, which is currently under elaboration.

This first version of the dictionary includes terms that belong to the subject fields of modernization and globalization; economy and socioeconomic systems; socialization; institutionalization; family; work; leisure and consumption; culture and identity; religion; conflict, inequality and social exclusion; life and health cycles; and social policies and the welfare state. You can check out the concept diagram document to place these subject fields in the entire collection.

The Diccionari de sociologia (‘Dictionary of Sociology’) published in 1992 by Fundació Barcelona and TERMCAT, which contained 400 terms, was the baseline for the elaboration of this dictionary.

Every term includes its designations in Catalan, subject label, definition, equivalents in Spanish and English and, if deemed necessary, additional notes to expand the information of the definition, cross-reference other terms to help lay out the concept, provide information about the usage or the origin of the terms, etc.

Through the online publication we want to grant access to terminology to all its potential users, experts in sociology or social sciences, students, linguistic mediators and all kinds of readers interested in this field. We encourage you to use the terminology, spread it amongst the potentially interested groups and let us know your suggestions for improvements or updates.

You can access the terminological records using the alphabetical list of all the designations (for each of the languages of the dictionary), using the subject field list of the designations in Catalan, or by performing simple or advanced searches (directly in the field “Text de la consulta” ('Text search'), in any of the languages of the dictionary).
