In this paper, we describe a methodology used to create a test corpus for the evaluation of term extractors. This methodology relies on term annotation: terms in a corpus on automotive engineering are selected based on specific criteria pertaining to the terminological setting as well as linguistic and formal properties of terms and term variations. The test corpus accounts for the variety of ways in which terms are realized in running text, and provides a means of automatically evaluating the relevance of term candidate lists produced by term extractors. Due to the XML annotation scheme used, the corpus can be customized, e.g. by filtering out some of the annotated terms based on the type of term or term variation, or frequency. In this paper, we focus on the methodological aspects of this work.
