Abstract: Languages for special purposes are represented in general dictionaries through the terms that belong to each, along with the words that belong to language for general purposes. Terms are presented in general dictionaries as technical or specialized senses of lexical items. However, terms are not always easy to recognize in general dictionaries which present entries for lexical items and not terms, although subject field labels are often used to identify the technical senses corresponding to terms. This thesis examines the presence and treatment of terms in general dictionaries. It also analyzes the policies and guidelines on the inclusion of terms and indication of their field in selected unilingual and bilingual general dictionaries. Finally, it examines the Bilingual Canadian Dictionary's policies on the inclusion of terms and indication of their field and analyzes their application in examples taken from the Bilingual Canadian Dictionary lexicographic database.
