PhrasaLex II

The PHRASALEX II Workshop on Phraseological Approaches to Learner’s Lexicography will take place online on 22 and 23 July 2021 and is hosted by the Institute for Information Science and Natural Language Processing at Hildesheim University.

PHRASALEX II is organised in four sessions and brings together international experts in the fields of lexicography, lexicology, cognitive linguistics, lexicogrammar, corpus linguistics, and NLP.

The workshop is embedded in an ongoing multilingual research project in Learner’s Lexicography and is intended as a platform for disseminating project results, for enhancing discussion on lexicographic theory and practice, and for promoting networking and knowledge sharing among participants (see further details in the Workshop Description).

Abstracts are available inside the programme.
