3rd GlobaLex Workshop on Lexicography and Neology - Focus on Corona-related
Neologisms - Call for Papers
The third iteration of Globalex Workshop on Lexicography and Neology (GWLN)
will be held online in conjunction with the AUSTRALEX Conference 2021, on
GWLN 2021 is supported by Globalex - the Global Alliance for Lexicography - and
will follow on the two GWLN events organized in conjunction with the DSNA 2019
and EURALEX 2020/2021 conferences.
The focus of GWLN 2021 is on neologisms arising in relation to the Corona
pandemic. We invite papers discussing issues related to the detection of such
neologisms - including new words, new meanings of existing words, and new
multiword units - and their representation in lexicography and dictionaries.
Our aim is to offer cross-world views on lexicographic detection and
representation of Corona-driven neologisms for different languages in general
and Australasian ones in particular.
Challenges regarding Corona neologisms and lexicography arising for any
contemporary language include, but are not limited to:
* how to find Corona neologisms (corpus analysis and editorial means of
identification, evaluation of data, e.g. blogs and chats)
* how to explain meaning with/without encyclopedic information, and how to
use illustrations and audio-visual media
* how dictionary users can help with finding and informing about Corona
* to what extent does a language borrow Corona neologisms from other
languages (and which ones) and/or does the language in question use word
formation to enlarge the Corona-related vocabulary
Abstracts including 500-1,000 words should be submitted by February 1, 2021 to
gwln2021@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx<mailto:gwln2021@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> and will be reviewed
by the workshop organizers and members of the Australex Scientific Committee.
Notification on acceptance will be made by March 15, 2021.
Participation in the workshop is free.
