(Apologies for multiple postings)

On behalf of the Trustees of the Adam Kilgarriff Prize, I am delighted to 
announce that the Prize for 2019 has been awarded to Matt Kohl for his hip-hop 
dictionary, The Right Rhymes <https://therightrhymes.com/>.

The Right Rhymes is an interactive, evidence-based dictionary, incorporating 
many features (such as data visualization and links to external data) which are 
frequently talked about in the lexicographic literature, but not so often 
implemented. We were all impressed by the way Matt employed current 
technologies and strong design skills to create such an appealing and 
innovative product. His dictionary - a solo project - is a model of 
corpus-driven lexicography. 
 
In this, the second iteration of the Adam Kilgarriff Prize, the high quality of 
applications has been maintained. We received nine submissions, many of them 
really excellent, and the judging process was long and challenging. In the end, 
the Trustees agreed that Matt Kohl should be awarded the Prize - but only after 
several in-depth discussions.

We were impressed by all the applications, and we would like to thank the other 
applicants very warmly, not least for giving us the opportunity to learn more 
about the interesting work they are doing.
