International Society for Historical Lexicography and Lexicology
ISHLL is a society of scholars interested in the history of the dictionary, the making of historical dictionaries, and historical lexicology. Subscribe to the mailing list and discussion group to join our activities and discussions.
ISHLL was established as a result of the first International Conference on Historical Lexicography and Lexicology, which took place in Leicester in 2002. Subsequent conferences have been at Gargnano del Garda, Italy (2004), Leiden, The Netherlands (2006), Edmonton, Canada (2008), Oxford, UK (2010) and Jena, Germany (2012). ICHLL7 will take place at the Universidad de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain from the 9th to the 11th of July, 2014. Subscribe to the mailing list to receive calls for papers.
