2022 winner: Elena Álvarez Mellado

On behalf of the Trustees of the Adam Kilgarriff Prize, I’m delighted to announce that the Prize for 2022 has been awarded to Elena Álvarez Mellado of the UNED School of Computer Science in Madrid. Elena was awarded the Prize for her leading role in the creation and development of an NLP-based system for the automatic retrieval of English loanwords in the Spanish press; for monitoring and analysing their use; for the associated website Observatorio Lázaro; and for a number of related assets, including a Twitter bot (@lazarobot), which gives the project a social dimension.

We congratulate Elena, and look forward to seeing her later this year at the eLex 2023 conference in Brno, Czechia (27–29 June). We also sincerely thank all the other applicants, not least for giving us the opportunity to learn more about the interesting work they are doing.

Adam Kilgarriff Prize Announcement

We are pleased to announce the establishment of the Adam Kilgarriff Prize, in honour of our brilliant and much-loved colleague Adam, who died last year.

The Adam Kilgarriff Prize is intended to recognise outstanding work in the fields to which Adam contributed so much: corpus linguistics, computational linguistics, and lexicography. The aim is to encourage younger researchers, so applicants must be under 40 at the point when nominations close. The prize will be awarded to an individual researcher for an original publication, a piece of software, a product or service, or any combination of the above.
