understanding of the word, including Asian contexts in which cultural and
textual hybridity is the norm. The following strands will be covered:
     * lexicology and lexicography
     * sociolinguistics and language pedagogy
     * information and communications technology
     * literary, cultural and postcolonial studies

All presentations should be given in English. Please visit our website,
