The LEXESP Research Group is pleased to announce its IV International Seminar on English and ESP Lexicology and Lexicography to be held at the University of Alicante (Spain) on May 5-6, 2016.

Video games have progressively gained a large presence in society. In relation to this, new forms of synchronous telecommunication have emerged, and terms and expressions have made their way into commonplace language. It is against this background that the IV International Seminar on English and ESP Lexicology and Lexicography will focus on the different lexical and syntactic characteristics of video games that have an impact on language and communication.
