Workshop ‘FeminineMasculine’ in Contrastive Lexicology and Phraseology
Workshop convenor: Ramón Martí Solano

The words and expressions used in natural languages to refer to the sexes, to their relations, resemblances and differences and to their distinctive traits are numerous and varied. They are the product and the reflection not only of the idiosyncrasy of a linguistic community but also of the roles, either real or presupposed, associated in each language to men and women.

Our aim is to bring together researchers in lexicology, lexicography, lexical semantics, phraseology, paremiology and other related fields in order to observe and analyse the concepts of ‘feminine’/‘masculine’, their representations and interrelations.
Linguistic Subfield: Historical Linguistics; Lexicography; Morphology; Semantics; Translation
