Australasian Association for Lexicography




The 2005 AUSTRALEX conference (Australian and New Zealand Society for Lexicography) took place at the University of Melbourne on Tuesday 27 September, at Trinity College. The conference theme was "Dictionaries and the community", designed to examine the contexts of dictionary-making and dictionary use.

Keynote speaker for the conference was Dr Ghil'ad Zuckermann, a fellow at the Research Centre for Linguistic Typology (La Trobe University), who focussed on the role of the Academy of the Hebrew Language in compiling and creating a lexicon for modern Israeli speakers, both in Israel and overseas.
