Conference Description:

In honor and memoriam of ILHAN AYVERDI (1926-2009)

Kubbealti Academy Culture and Art Foundation, that has aimed at perpetuating studies in Turkish language, history, and cultural heritage, has designated the dictionary writing as its primary purpose since its foundation in 1970. At the end of this determined advancement, a Dictionary Division was established within its structure in 2005.

In the same year, Great Turkish Dictionary with Examples (3 volumes) was published by late Ilhan AYVERDI who, as the head of the trustee committee, had worked on this dictionary for 34 years. Subsequently, the Foundation has reached its first goal in the field of dictionary writing by publishing Turkish Dictionary, School Dictionary, and Great Turkish Dictionary with Examples (1 volume).

In its 40th anniversary, with the participation of Bahçesehir University Civilization Studies Center and Elginkan Foundation, Kubbealti Academy Culture and Art Foundation aims to support the field of dictionary research -which we consider as important as dictionary writing- at an academic level, to foster scholarly exchange, and to enrich the scholarly accumulation with new perspectives in these fields, either in Turkish or in other languages.

* Dictionary Research: Dictionary grammar and proficiency
* Dictionary Types: The classification of the types, structure and scope in terms of subject coverage

We kindly invite all the researchers, who share “Today’s dictionary studies will form tomorrow’s dictionaries” idea, to participate in the International Symposium on Dictionary Writing and Research in Türkiye and in the World.
