International Journal of Lexicography
Special Issue: The Legacy of John Sinclair
Guest edited by Patrick Hanks

John Sinclair was the most radical thinker on the lexicon of the 20th
century. His insights into the nature of collocations and discourse
structure have inspired new ways of analysing meaning. He was never
afraid to face up to awkward questions such as the vague and
probabilistic nature of meaning and of evidence of word use. His
insistence on close, detailed analysis of evidence played a major role
in the development of the emerging discipline of corpus linguistics, now
universally recognised as a cornerstone of modern lexicography. In this
memorial issue, some of his leading former colleagues and admirers from
Asia, Africa, and America as well as Britain and Europe, present a broad
spectrum of papers inspired by the Sinclairian approach, ranging from
practical dictionary making to new developments in linguistic theory.
