AUSTRALEX was founded in 1990, as a companion association to EURALEX. It is committed to the development of lexicography in all languages of the Australasian region. AUSTRALEX's interests include:

  • dictionaries of all kinds (monolingual, bilingual, and multilingual, general and specialist, in book and online)
  • the theory of lexicography
  • the history of lexicography
  • the practice of dictionary-making
  • dictionary use
  • terminology and terminography
  • corpus lexicography
  • computational lexicography and dictionaries for natural language processing
  • lexicology

The AUSTRALEX membership consists mainly of people from Australia and New Zealand, but it also has members in Japan, Zambia and the UK. It includes career lexicographers, students of lexicography and researchers into dictionaries, publishers, teachers, and people who "just like dictionaries". Anyone interested in becoming a member can apply here.

AUSTRALEX is governed by a committee of 10 members, who are elected every two years. The association holds regular meetings, where papers are presented on a large variety of topics relevant to its members' interests.
