Language and lexicography research

This is an exciting area of collaboration between researchers in eighteenth-century literature and linguists who work on meaning and phraseology. We focus particularly on:

  • dictionaries: how they are made; how they are used; what they tell us about research into language.
  • writing about language in various periods: changing views of lexis, meaning, and grammar.
