This paper aims to thoroughly analyzeterminological studies as a particular modality of domain analysis (DA). The results show the need to further define the profile of terminological studiesto use them in KO better. They also suggest considering terminological studies as a separate DA category, specifically in relation to language for special purposes (LSP) and discourse analysis. Finally, the preliminary conclusions will guide future research in the field. In particular, we stress that terminological research methods seem not to be sufficiently recognized as suitable for application in KO.
