The Future of Linguistics and Lexicographers: Will there be Lexicographers in the year 3000 ?

Abstract : Lexicography has been a respected tradition of scientific pursuit since the eighteenth century.Will the science of lexicography survive into the third millennium? I will discuss what present ­day computational linguistics can offer the lexicographer in the lexicographic task. I will show that the data can be purified in clearer and clearer forms through approximate linguistics. I will then speculate about what aspects of the lexicographic task can be automated, what tasks remain incumbent on humans, and wonder whether a new vision of the lexicon will • emerge .
