Call for papers


 23rd International Conference of AFRILEX

27-29 June 2018, University of the Western Cape, Cape Town, South Africa

(Back to back with the 20th International Congress of Linguists (ICL20))


Invited: papers with a lexicographic focus on any aspect of lexicography or terminology.


         Special sessions may be proposed.

         All submissions will be adjudicated.

         The conference language is English.


Prospective presenters are to submit abstracts to reach AFRILEX before 28 February 2018. The abstract should be formatted according to the template. Abstracts must be between 600 and 800 words long for adjudicators to make informed judgements on the central argument of the paper, especially given that conference proceedings are not published. Abstracts should contain the following elements: a central argument, how the study was conducted and some (preliminary) conclusions. Papers that do not comply with these requirements will unfortunately be rejected.


Abstracts should be sent by e-mail to ahdp@sun.ac.za


Abstract Committee:

Prof. Sonja Bosch: boschse@unisa.ac.za and Mr. Andre du Plessis: ahdp@sun.ac.za


Receipt of abstracts will be acknowledged and feedback will be given to authors as soon as the abstracts are received back from the adjudicators. Abstracts of accepted papers will be distributed during the conference. MS PowerPoint Presentation facilities will be available. As a backup, presenters are invited to e-mail their presentation to the organiser ahead of the conference.


Please note: It is compulsory for presenters of papers and special sessions to register in advance (i.e. before 20 May 2018).
