  • The third biennial conference
    on electronic lexicography
    eLex 2013 took place in Tallinn, Estonia, from 17-19 October 2013.
    it was organised by Trojina - Institute for Applied Slovene Studies and her partners.
    The previous two eLex conferences have included presentations 
    on many innovative approaches to presenting lexicographic information,
    however there were, perhaps unavoidably, still discussions on the differences
    between paper and electronic dictionaries, as well as comparisons
    of their advantages and disadvantages. Such discussions merely take away the focus
    from the actual task at hand – to find different ways on how to exploit the rich potential
    of electronic medium in order to respond (quickly) to the needs of the
    new types of users, as well as to the needs of modern lexicographers,
    to forget about conventional approaches and be innovative,
    to conceptualize the dictionary with an electronic format in mind; 
    in other words, “to think outside the paper”.

  • Logo proposal for the organiser Trojina - Institute for Applied Slovene Studies and her partners
    Slovene language has besides singular tense (ednina) and plural tense (množina) also “double” (dvojina).
    Trojina is a word game on “dvojina”, and means triple.
