Meeting Description: Lexicographers seek to multiply dictionaries on offer in order to include new languages or new vocabulary fields. At the same time, lexicographic critics challenge the feasibility of certain dictionaries, which fail to implement validated theoretical models.

The aim of the conference is the analysis of on-going lexicographic projects, to find answers to essential typological and linguistic issues, such as:

- What kind of typological/linguistic problems may compromise the development of lexicographic projects?
- How may dictionary typologies be adapted to different languages?
- How may new lexicographic projects profit from both the methods and/or the documentation work that was garnered by previous or unsuccessful projects?
Linguistic Subfield: History of Linguistics; Lexicography; Text/Corpus Linguistics
