Lexical and Phraseological Neologisms in Contemporary English (Thematic workshop of the BICLCE-10 International Conference).
University of Alicante (Spain). 26-28 September 2024.
Deadline for submission of proposals: 15 December 2023.

Presentation of the event

The lexical dynamics of the English language lead to a constant ebb and flow of analogical formations, compounds, derivatives and innovations of all types giving rise to new words and phrases that fit novel situations in an ever-changing society or in specialized fields, and also to flash-in-the-pan coinages that reflect the high level of creativity of the general public and language professionals. This workshop welcomes papers that aim at identifying, analysing and studying both lexical and phraseological neologisms in 21st-century English and expects to contribute to an update on the state-of-the-art research into the various mechanisms of word-formation and lexical creativity.
