Critical features of word meaning as an educational tool in learning and teaching natural sciences
2007 (English)In: The 13 International Conference on Thinking,2007, Linköping: Linköping University Electronic Press , 2007Conference paper (Refereed)
The educational challenge of polysemy of words used both in non-formal(every-day) and scientific formal languages is addressed. An analysing tool has been elaborated to make this kind of polysemy of words explicit by discerning three different sets of meaning: non-formal, a scientific quality and a physical quantity, respectively. The discernment process is a particular way of seeing the critical aspects
of variation of meaning simultaneously connected to one and the same invariant word.
