Lexicography: Journal of ASIALEX joins the time-honored tradition of dictionary compilation in Asia, discussing a great many topics and tackling many problems. The region is home to 2,304 of the world’s 7,105 living languages, and to great numbers of dictionary users, both native- and foreign-language.
