WG4: LEXICOGRAPHY AND LEXICOLOGY
FROM A PAN-EUROPEAN PERSPECTIVE
Working group 4 will investigate how the pan-European nature of the vocabularies of the languages of Europe can be represented in single-language dictionaries and within the European dictionary portal. This is particularly relevant to studying the multiple dimensions of borrowing, i.e. the migration and re-migration of words and meanings across the languages of Europe. This working group will:
- develop ways in which already existing information from single language dictionaries can be displayed and interlinked to represent more adequately their common European heritage
- develop editorial guidelines for the integration of European information into more traditional and into innovative dictionaries
- find new applications for the very large amount of interconnected dictionary information from the European dictionary portal in the field of digital humanities
- organise a training school in lexicography and lexicology from a pan-European perspective in 2017.
