RIBEIRO-ALVES, Adriana  e  FERREIRA CABRERA, Anita. Specialized terminology in informed consent documents in biomedical scientific investigations. Lit. lingüíst. [online]. 2021, n.43, pp.349-370. ISSN 0716-5811.

The study is circumscribed along the lines of specialized termi- nology according to the corpus linguistics methodology. The main purpose was to contribute from a phraseological perspec- tive, with a proposal of collocations for the characterization of the informed consent documents used in biomedical scientific research. The investigative approach is based on the fact that this type of discursive genre considers among its constituent ele- ments, a term or a nuclear terminological unit, of the specialty itself. Thus, it is argued that the identification of specialized phra- seological units such as collocations, record the trend of demar- cation of topical structures in the informed consent document, present in the information and in the statements that precede the signatures of the subjects who will be involved in a certain scientific investigation in the biomedical sciences. The results were obtained through computational processing with Sketch Engine® of a corpus of informed consent documents. In this way, phraseological parameters of agreement and frequency of words were established in the configuration of a specialized document in the field of scientific-biomedical research. This study is expec- ted to contribute to the standardization or normalization of the use of information documents for the subject of study / patient, with an adequate structure that confers greater readability to said documents. These are essential for the development of scientific research and have implications for doctor-patient interaction in the area of health.
