The Semantic Field of Migration in Specialized Parallel Texts: Terms and Equivalences

Máté Kovács

Abstract


The present study aims at analyzing the semantic field of migration in French and Hungarian specialized parallel texts. Based on a corpus comprising various types of documents of the European institutions, this article studies terms and expressions used to describe the migration as a phenomenon, those who leave their home and other events related to migration. The focus is placed upon a thorough semantic analysis of concepts as well as the equivalence that can be established between French and Hungarian terms. This study concluded that some terms used in the specialized texts seem to undergo semantic changes whereas others are newly created and all of them reflect the way European institutions conceptualize the present situation of migration.
