Abstract: To facilitate the process of consecutive interpreting, professional interpreters typically use a special system of note-taking. In the approaches developed on the basis of practical interpreting experience, these notations are commonly regarded as a note-taking technique, and in relevant specialist literature they are often conceived as a language-independent instrument. Against the background of a cognitive approach, however, it can be shown that the socalled note-taking TECHNIQUE can adequately be described by means of  the theoretical constructs LANGUAGE and DISCOURSE. The language  dimension is explored with regard to word meanings, word formation and inflection, semantic relations at sentence and text level as well as pragmatic functions. The discourse dimension is mainly discussed from the perspective of relevance theory with a particular emphasis on the balance between the explicit and the implicit.
