This article describes an evaluation of the Syntex tool used to define a terminology reference frame base for building a new dictionary. This tool is then used in an experiment in which technical terms are extracted from different corpora. These terms belong to the sub-domains “Fuel” and “Reactors” in the nuclear engineering field. The strategy used to exploit the results is explained and the terms extracted are analyzed. This method consists in submitting the results to nuclear field experts and combining their conclusions with terminological assessments. This article illustrates how these kinds of specialized contributions can be effectively employed. It is also shown how this orginal procedure can be generalized to other sub-domains in nuclear engineering.
