Dictionary Day at Ostroh Academy
October 31, 2012
On 30 October, Dictionary Day was celebrated as part of the English Speaking Club on the initiative of Master students of the Faculty of Romance and Germanic Languages and LEXILAB manager Lesia Kotsiuk. This tradition was borrowed from the United States of America to commemorate Noah Webster, father of the American dictionary.
As part of the celebration, the students prepared numerous intellectual tasks.
Taras Bereza, a philologist and compiler of many English-Ukrainian dictionaries, was the honorary guest of the celebration. He presented his Modern English-Ukrainian Dictionary of the Living Language, the latest novelty of the LEXILAB Lexicographical Laboratory.
