Trip to the Hungarian Linguistics Research Centre
On October 26th, EMLex students accompanied Dr. Zita Hollós for an afternoon of real-world lexicography at the Hungarian Research Center for Linguistics. Under the guise of Dr. Veronika Lipp, Dr. Bence Pomázi and PhD student Júlia Ballagó, they investigated the inner workings of a Hungarian language dictionary in an interactive session. Students participated in a Q&A and were even invited to try their hand at writing a dictionary entry—something which proved difficult without much knowledge of Hungarian! Afterwards, Dr. Hollós and the students met up with EMLex alumni Andrea and Tith and EMLex professor Dr. Dora Pődör for an evening of good company and delicious Hungarian food.
