New Approaches in English Historical Lexis Symposium

By | | No Comments

The third international New Approaches in English Historical Lexis Symposium (HEL-LEX3) will be held in Southern Finland at the Tvärminne Zoological Station from March 7-10, 2012.

Plenarists

Professor Lynda Mugglestone (Pembroke college, Oxford),
Dr Philip Durkin, Principal Etymologist of the Oxford English Dictionary, Oxford University Press,
Professor Michael Adams (University of Indiana, Bloomington).

Papers covering any aspect of English historical lexicography and lexicology, as well as subjects which involve other languages by way of a comparative study are welcome. Please submit an abstract of not more than 1 A4 page to hellex-2012@helsinki.fi not later than Sept 30, 2011.

The HEL-LEX organising committee is anxious to see that a proceedings volume will appear in good time after the conference. To this end, please keep in mind that a call for submission will allow only about three months after the conference to complete papers. As in the past, we will be asking Cascadilla press to do the proceedings, so that, pending their agreement, we advise that you consult their website about citation and presentation style, even at this early stage.
