In our memory of Adam, we could also recall fondly how he described our
community in a report he wrote on AsiaLex 2014.

Dear Friends of AsiaLex:

Adam has been

​a regular contributor
to AsiaLex
​ conferences and had a lot of collaborators in Asia. His most recent
a keynote speech at the last AsiaLex in Bali in
​Aug. ​
2013, and an important article 'The Sketch Engine: ten year on' to the
inaugural issue of Lexicography
