The Institute of Polish Language, University of Warsaw, The Institute of German Studies, University of Warsaw and The Polish Language Foundation invite you to the conference “Key words”, which will be held on October 26-27, 2018 at the University of Warsaw.

The topic of the conterence are key words in the public discourse, the methods of their selection and their linguistic analysing. This theme brings together different methodologies and different levels of analysis of language and discourse, including:

  • statistics linguistics,
  • corpus linguistics and linguistic engineering,
  • media studies,
  • cultural and intercultural linguistics,
  • lexicology and lexicography.

By combining different methods and experiences, we will try to describe the key words of contemporary Polish. It is mainly based on the experience of the project “Words on time” (slowanaczasie.uw.edu.pl) and the plebiscite “The word of the year”.
We will look with interest at similar projects in other, English, German and Slavic language speaking countries, e.g. “Wort des Jahres” in Germany.
