Meeting Description:

The 3rd international New Approaches on English Historical Lexis Symposium (HEL-LEX3) will be held on March 8-10, 2012 at the picturesque Tvärminne Zoological Station on the southern coast of Finland, not far from Hanko.

We hope to bring together international scholars with a range of interests in historical lexical studies, including professional lexicographers, interested in applying and developing new research methods in this area of English historical linguistics. The proceedings of the first two HEL-LEX symposia are available online and in hard copy (Cascadilla Proceedings Project; Cascadilla Press).


Professor Lynda Mugglestone (Pembroke college, Oxford), Dr Philip Durkin, Principal Etymologist of the Oxford English Dictionary, Oxford University Press, and Professor Michael Adams (University of Indiana, Bloomington).

Call for Papers:

The conference organisers are extending the second call for papers until November 11, 2011.

Papers covering any aspect of English historical lexicography and lexicology, as well as subjects which involve other languages by way of a comparative study are welcome from both academics and lexicographers. Please submit an abstract of not more than 1 A4 page to hellex-2012helsinki.fi not later than November 11, 2011. The conference website is at http://blogs.helsinki.fi/hel-lex2012/.

The HEL-LEX 3 organising committee is anxious to see that a proceedings volume will appear in good time after the conference. To this end, please keep in mind that a call for submission will allow only about three months after the conference to complete papers. As in the past, we will be asking Cascadilla press to do the proceedings, so that, pending their agreement, we advise that you consult their website (http://www.lingref.com/) about citation and presentation style, even at this early stage.
