The Department of Linguistics of the Roma Tre University is pleased to announce
the organization of the International Informal Colloquium on Possible Dictionaries.
In recent years, lexicon has imposed itself as one of the central topics of
interest for linguistic theory, applied linguistics and computational
linguistics. Theoretical studies can find application in dictionary-making as
well as in computational and corpus linguistics, that are often closely related
to each other. As a result new concepts - such as ''collocation'' or ''word
combination'' - have been implemented lexicographically, whereas others - like

The colloquium, which inaugurates the activities of a new research desk on word
and the lexicon (TRIPLE - Tavolo di Ricerca sulla Parola e il Lessico) recently
created at the Department of Linguistics of the Roma Tre University, aims at
fostering the presentation of new ideas and proposals of possible but still not
existing dictionaries and the implementation of new theoretical concepts under
The speakers will therefore present in an informal way the layout of new
projects for possible dictionaries on the basis of their research experience.
Furthermore, a final round table will take place with the participation of major
dedicated publishers, thus contributing to create a dialogue between academic
research and industrial dictionary production.
