5th International Symposium on History of English Lexicography and Lexicology

Prof. Dr. Olga Timofeeva

As with earlier conferences in this series we seek to bring together the expertise of scholars and professional dictionary makers. This time, to mark the 200th anniversary of Pierre Larousse and to celebrate other intellectuals who, like Samuel Johnson, Noah Webster, the Brothers Grimm, Niccolò Tommaseo, or Émile Littré, combined lexicography, philology, editing, publishing, writing poetry, essays or novels, and literary criticism in their prolific careers, we invite interested scholars to submit papers that explore the intersections of these fields of knowledge and labour.

Papers on the following topics are particularly welcome:

Lexicology and etymology
Lexicography and dictionary making
Historical lexical studies
Encyclopaedic dictionaries
Comparative studies of English and other national lexicographic traditions
Poets and writers as encyclopaedists
Poets and writers as generators of new lexis
Lexicographers as poets and writers

The abstracts, to be submitted by 1 September 2016, should be about 300 words in length (excluding references).

DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 30 SEPTEMBER 2016

Notification of acceptance will be issued by 31 October 2016.
