Defining The Nature Of Sublanguage

Theoretical and applied aspects of sublanguage study belong to one of the most promising trends in modern linguistics. Special lexical means, i.e. terms, have always been the basis for defining the essence and specificity of sublanguage. As a result, the majority of sublanguage studies center on the lexical system of sublanguage, to be more exact, its terminological layer. However, functional studies of sublanguage can by no means rely on the traditional notion of sublanguage as a terminological system. To define the nature of sublanguage in the light of anthropocentric approach to language study, we must turn to its functioning in communication, i.e. in communicative acts.

Prescription for Wave Solder Optimization

The benefits of board-wave optimization are significant, and call for a board-by-board assessment when determining wave solder guidelines. Direct measurement and management of what your boards are actually experiencing is the key.
