This paper discusses a number of implications of using either a conceptual approach or a lexico-semantic approach to terminology structuring, especially for interpreting data supplied by corpora for the purpose of building specialized dictionaries. A simple example, i.e., program, will serve as a basis for showing how relationships between terms are captured in both approaches. My aim is to demonstrate that truly conceptual approaches do not allow a flexible integration of terms and relationships between terms and that lexico-semantic approaches are more compatible with data gathered from corpora. I will also discuss some of the implications these approaches have for computational terminology and other corpus-based terminological endeavours.
