Activity: Participating in or organising an eventParticipation in workshop, seminar, course


Course whitin the Lisbon Summer School in Linguistics 2018 programme.

Lexicography, in addition to being an autonomous discipline, has become a central discipline in numerous areas of knowledge, ranging from eHealth to Digital Humanities, passing through language teaching and base resources development for Computational Linguistics and Natural Language Processing. Lexicography, which comprises scientific research on a corpus of words, reflects advances in Lexicology and Terminology, on the one hand, and metalexicographic concerns, including computer science and the analysis of the content of dictionaries and other lexical resources, on the other, providing a series of operative concepts and effective syntheses.
The seminar will have as fundamental objects: a) lexicography for communication in specialized contexts; b) lexicographic approaches and issues in relational and computational models of the lexicon: c) theories and methodologies of contemporary lexicography in different approaches: monolingual and bilingual lexicography, current and specialized language lexicography, mother-tongue, second or foreign language lexicography, and learning lexicography; d) lexicographic definition: description models of the lexicon.
Actual cases of lexicographic application will be presented throughout the seminar.
