Revista Alicantina de Estudios Ingleses (RAEI) is an international journal
of English Studies published annually since 1988 by the University of
Alicante, Spain. The journal is indexed in Linguistic Bibliography (BL),
Linguistics and Language Behavior Abstracts (LLBA), Modern Language
Association (MLA), Periodical Index Online (PIO), Linguistics Abstracts
Online (LAO) and Ciencias Sociales y Humanidades (ISOC).

RAEI is currently preparing a special issue entitled Words on Words and
Dictionaries, edited by Dr Antonio Lillo (antonio.lillo[at]ua[dot]es) from
the University of Alicante. The Editor would like to invite scholars who
are doing research in the fields of lexicology and lexicography to
participate in this volume, which is due out in December 2011.


Any applied and theoretical approaches to the study of English lexis, word
meaning and dictionaries are welcome (historical linguistics, cognitive
linguistics, corpus linguistics, sociolinguistics, pragmatics,
dialectology, contrastive linguistics, etc.). Contributions should deal
with aspects of English lexicology and lexicography, but articles dealing
with the study of lexis in other languages will also be welcome, provided
that they are written in English.

The scope of 'Words on Words and Dictionaries' includes, but is not limited

▪ Lexicology and lexical semantics
▪ Word-formation, phraseology and collocation
▪ Etymology
▪ Lexical variation and change
▪ Computational lexicology and lexicography
▪ Historical lexicology and lexicography
▪ Theory and methods of dictionary-making
▪ Dictionary use

The editor hopes this special issue will serve as a useful reference and
will stimulate further research into lexicology and lexicography.


Manuscripts should be written in English, not exceed 12,000 words, and be
submitted by 20th May 2011.

Submissions should be original, unpublished work and not under
consideration for publication elsewhere.

All submissions should conform to the general RAEI guidelines, which may be
accessed at http://www.ua.es/dpto/dfing/publicaciones/instructions.html

The Editor will select the most relevant articles for inclusion in the
volume. He will also notify authors on the suitability of their submission
once the reviewers' reports are received. Articles provisionally accepted
for publication may be returned to the author(s) for additions,
clarifications or alterations, in response to suggestions by the Editor and
reviewers, prior to final acceptance.

Manuscripts should be submitted in hard copy form (2 copies) to the address
below by 20th May 2011.
