4. Cross-domain disharmonization. A case study with adventure activities in legal and tourist domains in Spain
The phenomenon of harmonization has attracted much attention in the legal domain, and considerable efforts are devoted to reach both conceptual and terminological harmonization to ensure unambiguous communication in situations where different legal systems and languages come into contact. However, little interest was aroused for other kinds of harmonization, which are also of great importance. This paper aims to shed some light on what it is being called cross-domain harmonization, which refers to an intralingual harmonization that involves different specialized domains. To illustrate this kind of harmonization, or more specifically the lack of it (disharmonization), and its consequences, we provide several examples taken from real tourist and legal texts. Finally, some proposals are discussed tackling this type of disharmonization.
