Meeting Description:

The conference is devoted to key words in the public discourse, the methods of
their choosing and linguistic analysing. This theme brings together different
methodologies and different levels of analysis of language and discourse,

- statistics linguistics,
- corpus linguistics and linguistic engineering,
- media studies,
- cultural and intercultural linguistics,
- 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,
English, German and Slavic language speaking countries, e.g. ''Wort des
Jahres'' in Germany.
