AbstractWhen comparing different literature sources, differences in the terminology concerning soil deformation due to seepage may be found. The distinctions are caused by language barrier (Slavic and Germanic language groups), by the view on the mechanisms and by the way of understanding individual soil deformation processes. These differences in terminology are related to the naming of the phenomenon itself or to translation issues. Clear terminology is important when comparing stability criteria applied in different countries. Here “western” and “eastern” schools may be distinguished. This study provides an overview on terminology for soil deformation due to seepage in English, French, German, Russian, Polish and Czech languages, some suggestions are presented with discussion. The paper is an initial phase for further comparison of criteria for individual soil deformation modes.
