EMLex 2021 summer school


Opinions on our EMLex 2020 summer school:



En primer lugar quería darte la enhorabuena por el Módulo “Learner´s Lexocography”, tanto por su gestión como por su contenido. Me ha parecido muy interesante y he aprendido conceptos que podré aplicar a la tesis.

I just wanted to thank you for the opportunity to take part in the ‘learner lexicography’ module. I found the sessions interesting and insightful.

About the EMLex 2021 summer school:


In the summer term 2021, the EMLex consortium will offer training courses in the fields of lexicography and dictionary research. These classes can be taken as intensive courses at the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg in Germany in the context of the Erasmus Mundus program “European Master in Lexicography (EMLex)”. The university provides excellent conditions for learning and teaching. Furthermore, the cities Erlangen and Nuremberg offer a great ambience for various activities, and a cultural program. Because of the novel Corona virus pandemic, it will also be possible to attend the courses virtually.

Course information

10 free places for external participants will be available for each course; pre-booking is necessary. One course will take five days (Monday-Friday) with 26-28 teaching hours. Individual preparation and follow-up work for external participants is not necessary. The participants will get a confirmation of attendance from the individual lecturers and the EMLex consortium. Preferably, external participants have gathered knowledge and experiences in the fields of linguistics, languages, lexicography and/or dictionary making already to achieve the greatest benefits from these high-quality courses. The teaching language will be either German or English.

Participants can choose from 9 different intensive courses, in which subjects of theoretical and practical lexicography will be taught. The course subjects can for instance be transferred to actual dictionary projects, so that a knowledge transfer to external lexicographical projects is possible. The course content also includes basic lexicographical knowledge, which is necessary to conceptualize new projects. Furthermore, it will be possible to deepen the existing lexicographical knowledge. All teachers and guest lecturers are internationally renowned experts in their research fields.

Participation costs

The participation costs are 100,00 € per course for students (prepayment and student ID are required) and 500,00 € per course for other external participants (prepayment is required). Travel and accommodation costs must be organized and paid by the participants themselves. Please register via e-mail to the EMLex office ( After registration, detailed information will be submitted.
