Fourth Globalex Workshop on Lexicography and Neology, 2022


A half-day workshop will be held in conjunction with EURALEX 2022 | HYBRID | July 12 2022


GWLN-4 – the fourth edition of Globalex Workshop on Lexicography and Neology (GWLN) – will be held as a hybrid pre-conference workshop at the twentieth Euralex Congress in Mannheim, 2022.

The aim of the GWLN series is to bring together cross-world views combining detection and evaluation methods of neologisms with their lexicographic processing and representation for different languages. GWLN takes place annually with support of the Global Alliance for Lexicography (Globalex), in conjunction with the international conferences of the continental associations for lexicography.

Call for Papers

We invite papers discussing pertinent issues related to neologisms – including new words, new multiword units, new elements of word formation, and new meanings of any of these – in the context of lexicography and dictionaries. All the submissions will be peer-reviewed by two members of the Review Committee. The workshop proceedings will be published online on the Euralex 2022 and Globalex websites, will be freely accessible, and submitted for indexing in Scopus.

Abstracts including 1,000 words should be submitted to
