entire range of anthropology as a science. It is a part of national language planning oriented terminology management

encountered during the procedural stages of the project are outlined, such as the wide range of the interdisciplinary
field of anthropology, including concepts and terms from natural and social sciences and humanities, as well as
polysemy and fuzzy boundaries between the lexicon of the general language and specialized language. On the basis of
several examples, we argue that terminography should be dealt with primarily by keeping in mind the range of its subsequent
applications the aim of which is not only ontological, but also communicative in nature, and that functional pragmatic
approach offers a more flexible framework for dealing with the demands of terminology in such an interdisciplinary
