Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics; Language Acquisition; Lexicography; Semantics

Meeting Description:

The lexicon plays a central role in many areas of basic and applied sciences,
from psychology and cognitive science to applied linguistics. Understanding the
structure, composition and use of the lexicon holds important keys to
understanding many research fields and a wide range of human activities.

Approaches to the Lexicon is an international symposium on the lexicon. Upwards
of fifty leading researchers in four different areas have been invited to
address, discuss and develop some of the most topical research questions in
order to advance the state of the art within the field of lexicon research. The
symposium is organized into four tracks bound together by cross-disciplinary
- Lexical semantics
- Word-formation
- Terminology and ontologies
- Second-language lexical acquisition.

The last day of the symposium is devoted to a workshop in which a panel
addresses topics in the interfaces between the four areas.

All papers given are by invited speakers.

The conference is organized by the Department of International Language Studies
and Computational Linguistics at Copenhagen Business School and the Center for
Internationalisation and Parallel Language Use at the University of Copenhagen.
The venue is Copenhagen Business School, Dalgas Have 15, 2000 Frederiksberg,


We very much encourage all interested researchers and PhD students to
participate actively as audience in the symposium. Since only a limited number
of places are available, registration to attend will be on a first-come-first-
served basis.
