The PhrasaLex III Workshop on Phraseological Approaches to Lexicography will take place in hybrid form from 10th to 12th July 2024 and is hosted by the Institute for Translation Studies at Innsbruck University.

PhrasaLex III is organised in different sessions and brings together international experts in the fields of lexicography, lexicology, cognitive linguistics, lexicogrammar, corpus linguistics, and NLP. The Workshop is organised in three sessions and two Keynote talks. Round tables at the end of each day will enhance further discussions about theoretical and practical lexicographic key issues.

The PhrasaLex workshop series is linked to PhraseBase, a research project for the creation of a multilingual Linguistic Information System including a learner's dictionary, and is intended as a platform for disseminating project results, for enhancing discussion on lexicographic issues and to encourage the interchange of expert knowledge among participants.

See further details on our official PhrasaLex website


This year the workshop will be held in memory of Patrick Hanks, lexicographer and corpus linguist (, who sadly left us in February 2024. Patrick was an enthusiastic supporter of the PhraseBase project from the very beginning and was an active part of the first PhrasaLex workshop, which was held in Modena, Italy, in 2019.

Through our workshop, we wish to honour Patrick’s fundamental theoretical, methodological and, not least, human contribution to our project and to the research of many of the PhrasaLex participants.
