Successful lexicography workshop at the University of Melbourne
Over fifty participants from around Australia attended a lexicography workshop at the University of Melbourne between 21-22 April this year.
Hosted by the CoEDL Shape program the event featured presentations from Ewa Czaykowska-Higgins, Jenny Green, Aung Si, Myf Turpin, Mary Laugren, David Wilkins, Nick Evans, Anna Margetts and Murray Garde.
The workshop specifically addressed interesting linguistic issues that languages present for dictionary development, as well as the various ways in which linguists might approach these in the development process. Moving beyond the traditional seminar format, each presentation was opened to structured discussion with the aim of sounding out new approaches in lexicography.
