Meeting Description:

14th EURALEX International Congress

We take great pleasure in inviting you to take part in the 14th EURALEX International Congress that will be held in Leeuwarden/Ljouwert, The Netherlands from 6 July until 10 July 2010. The Congress will be organized by the Fryske Akademy (Frisian Academy). The EURALEX Congresses bring together professional lexicographers, publishers, researchers, software developers and others interested in dictionaries of all types. The programme will include plenary lectures, parallel sessions, software demonstrations, a special session for students and work-in-progress, a book and software exhibition, and social events for participants and their guests.

Guest Speakers:

We are delighted to announce our guest speakers for this conference. Since the lexicography of non-state languages is a special feature of the congress, we are particularly happy that Dr Sarah Ogilvie, from Oxford, will address the audience. She will read a paper entitled: ‘On Lexicography and Endangered Languages: What Can Europe Learn from the Rest of the World?’ Prof. Dr Rolf H. Bremmer, from Leiden University, will explain how Frisian and English are related. The well-known etymologist Prof. Dr Anatoly Liberman, from the University of Minnesota, will discuss ‘The Genre and Uses of the Etymological Dictionary.’ The traditional Hornby lecture will be delivered by Prof. Dr Paul Bogaards, from Leiden University and editor of the International Journal of Lexicography. Prof. Bogaards will explore the subject of ‘Dictionaries and foreign language learning.’ Our fifth invited speaker will be announced shortly.

-Computational Lexicography and Lexicology
