Meeting Description:

The conference, organized by the University of Warsaw, is devoted to key words in the public discourse and to the methods of their choosing. This theme brings together different methodologies and different levels of analysis of language and discourse, including:

- Statistics linguistics
- Corpus linguistics and linguistic engineering
- Media studies
- Lexicology and lexicography

By combining different methods and experiences, we will try to describe the key words of contemporary Polish. It is mainly based on the experience of the project ''Words on time'' ( and the plebiscite ''The word of the year''. We will look with interest at similar projects in other countries, including ''Wort des Jahres'' in Germany.
