ASIALEX 2005 will take place in Singapore from 1 - 3 June 2005, and is
jointly organised by the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, the
Department of English Language and Literature, and the Asia Research
Institute at the National University of Singapore.   It represents the
2005 biennial conference of the Asian Association for Lexicography
(ASIALEX), and is one of the centennial celebrations of the National
University of Singapore.

The theme of ASIALEX2005 is "Words in Asian Cultural Contexts". The
conference aims to examine the functions and representations of words,
and hopes to bring together scholars of language, linguistics and
literature in an interdisciplinary forum. We encourage papers that focus
on a wider understanding of the word, including Asian contexts in which
cultural and textual hybridity is the norm. The following strands will
be covered:

* lexicology and lexicography
* sociolinguistics and language pedagogy
* information and communications technology
* literary, cultural and postcolonial studies

All presentations should be given in English. Please visit our website,
http://asialex.nus.edu.sg <http://asialex.nus.edu.sg>  for more details,
including on-line registration and abstract submission. We invite you to
submit your abstract (max 250 words) as soon as possible using the
on-line facility, and in any case no later than 31 December 2004.

We hope to see you in Singapore next year!
