Abstract: © 2020 Universidad de Murcia Servicio de Publicaciones. All rights reserved.Studies on the lexicographical treatment of technical architectural terms in general language dictionaries are scarce. Our article shows how architectural technical terms were treated by the French Academy in the fourth edition of its dictionary (1762) through the study of a series of specific terms related to architecture and building. Jean Nicot's Thresor de la langue françoyse, tant ancienne que moderne (1606) is considered to be one of the first dictionaries to have identified a large number of architectural terms. In this work, we trace the presence or absence of these terms in the Dictionnaire de l'Académie française (1762) and study whether they have become part of the common language or whether they continue to be regarded as specialized terms.
