Call for papers: Lexicography discussion group session, MLA 2007, Chicago

150 Years of the OED

In 1857, the Philological Society of London decided to embark on a new dictionary project. From its
inception, the project was both a specialized, philologically rigorous endeavor and a collaborative
undertaking driven by popular energy and national pride in the English language. It would grow
beyond the society's imaginings to become a hallmark of historical lexicography: the Oxford English
Dictionary. This session invites proposals that discuss the historical construction, cultural reception,
research applications, and/or methodological considerations of the dictionary in its paper or electronic
editions. Abstracts by March 20 to Colette Moore (cvmoore_at_u.washington.edu).
