Abstract:

This essay for the inaugural issue of Technology and Language demonstrates the close relationship between technology and language with just a few examples from engineering education. Just like a name becomes meaningful in the context of a sentence, the meaning of an engineering object depends on external circumstances. This relation between technology and language is not the same in all Engineering cultures and languages, however – as testified by the differences between engineering education in Russian and English.
