This article argues the need to resort to categories or basic cognitive schemata from the field of law in order to frame and identify private documents for the transfer of property (documents for the transfer of property and title). The objective is to better understand their main cognitive and terminological properties, thus facilitating the interpretation of their contents. The study is grounded in a multi-faceted theory of terminology in which terms and other related concepts (such as terminological nodes and the conceptual structure of a text) are understood via the frameworks of different sciences. In our case cognitive science applied to law represents the main access door to terms and the conceptual structure of texts. However, we also study their linguistic expression within texts and do this using examples from Civil Law and Common Law. Finally, our approach allows to see how a static conceptual structure evolves towards several types of documents, new rights in-rem, new transferable rights and, generally speaking, new realities and interpretations within the field of transfer and disposition of property.
