Meeting Description:

La ricerca lessicografica in Italia e in Europa - Lexicographic research in
Italy and in Europe

The Faculty of the Undergraduate Programme in 'Traduzione dei testi letterari e
saggistici' is organizing, for the first time in Pisa, a conference with the aim
of examining the advances that have taken place at the international level in
diachronic and synchronic lexicography.
The talks will be of interest for scholars, translators and undergraduate and
graduate students in translation and other literary and linguistic disciplines.

The conference will take place over two days, 19-20 October 2007. Talks will be
given by representatives from some of the most important lexicographic projects
working in the major European languages.

The two days of the conference will provide students, scholars and translators
with a rich overview of the present state of lexicographic research and
production within the major European languages (French, English,, Italian,
Spanish, Portuguese and German). The talks will tackle fundamental issues both
in diachronic and synchronic lexicography. Aspects of monolingual and bilingual
dictionaries will be discussed.

The speakers will focus on traditional resources (history and macro- and
micro-structural characteristics of various monolingual and bilingual
dictionaries), as well as on electronic resources, and in particular on the text
databases and on-line dictionaries, which, in recent years, have become
essential resources for research in linguistics, literature and translation.

Conference attendees will be presented with the current state of the art in
European lexicography, its most recent developments and innovative lines of
research, in terms of both pure linguistic research and the technology used to
create, manage and interrogate corpora. Students will be made directly aware of
new and powerful tools for learning and research.
