Abstract
This presentation is in the spirit of earlier work in a field which could be called ‘meta-metalexicography’, in that (i) a bird’s eye view is taken of (ii) the scientific research devoted to (iii) the compilation of dictionaries. Level (iii) is known as lexicography, levels (ii-iii) as metalexicography, and levels (i-ii-iii) is therefore ‘meta-metalexicography’. This field is now a decade old and began with a bibliometric study in which it was shown that lexicography has truly become an independent discipline (de Schryver 2009a). This was followed by analyses of the two major metalexicographic journals of our field which are indexed by the Web of Science Citation Index, namely Lexikos (de Schryver 2009b) and the International Journal of Lexicography (de Schryver 2012b). With reference to conferences and to mark the crystal jubilee edition of the EURALEX congresses, all its speakers and topics were reviewed, cross-compared with one another, and plotted through time (de Schryver 2012a). A truly global metalexicographic corpus spanning over 5,000 publications (equivalent to 29.2 million tokens) was used for the very first time in a study published five years ago (Lew & de Schryver 2014), with material from Africa (3.9m tokens), the Americas (3.7m tokens), Asia (2.9m tokens), Europe (14.6m tokens), as well as international collaborations (4.1m tokens). --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For the current presentation both our global metalexicographic corpus as well as its Asian component have been enlarged and brought up to date. The full contents of the new journal Lexicography: Journal of ASIALEX, which began appearing in July 2014, have for instance been included. The ASIALEX proceedings since 2015 have also been added. This material enables us to make informed claims about the past and present of Asian lexicography, viewed on its own as well as in contrast to the rest of the world, and to predict the future of Asian lexicography based on the uncovered trends. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- References ASIALEX Conferences/Proceedings. 1997–.
