This research project continues our Ph.D. studies and proposes to verify the historical and socio-cultural aspects that underlie the terminology of Law regarding separation, divorce and matrimonial regimes of Brazil and France: identifying this terminological set in Portuguese and French; observing the dynamics of lexical (neological) production in this area, i.e., identifying terminological neologisms and checking the new terms that were created over time to name new concepts and the cases that have become obsolete, as their concepts are no longer acceptable to the domain in question; and comparing the lexical and conceptual dynamics and the socio-cultural and historical aspects observed in the field of Brazilian and French law in relation to the chosen theme. Therefore, this study is based on theoretical and methodological assumptions of terminology (ALVES, 2006; BARROS, 2004; CABRÉ, 1999), more specifically on diachronic terminology (BORTOLATO, 2013; DURY, 1999; TARTIER, 2006), and on a bibliography of the area of Law and History of Brazil and France (COULON, 1890; HOUDAILLE; BOLOGNE, 1999; MARQUES, 2004; PERROT, 1995; PINHEIRO, 2012; SOARES, 1895). This proposal draws on some of our results from other studies on sociocultural and historical issues that underlie the terminology of the domain of Brazilian and French marriage certificates (CURTI; BARROS, 2016 and 2018; CURTI-CONTESSOTO; BARROS, 2018; CURTI-CONTESSOTO, 2018 and 2019). Thus, this research intends to contribute to the diachronic studies in Terminology, as well as to provide linguistic elements that allow better communication in the subject area. (AU)
