Computer-assisted Lexicology and Lexicography (CompLexico)

CompLexico is a research group initiated and led by Gede Primahadi W. Rajeg. It subsumes the two research strands in the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research on the Humanities and Social Sciences (CIRHSS): (i) Indonesian Languages, Documentation and Learning (for the linguistics aspect) and (ii) Digital Humanities (for the digital and computational aspects). CompLexico is formalised by the Rector of Udayana University on 16 April 2024 (Decree no. 594/UN14/HK/2024).

CompLexico focuses on the interdisciplinary study of words/vocabularies (lexicology) and the curation of lexical databases/dictionaries (lexicography). It lies at the intersection of (i) lexicology, (ii) computational approach to language based on analysing digital language databases and corpora (i.e., corpus linguistics), (iii) electronic lexicography, and (iv) multi-methodological approaches (combining qualitative and quantitative methods using corpus and experimental data).

CompLexico aims at both pedagogical and research-related goals. Pedagogically, we strive to introduce language students at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels, especially at Udayana University, to a range of modern computational and corpus-linguistic software for studying lexicon and curating lexical databases. In terms of research, we aim to investigate central topics in lexicology (i.e., the study of word meaning and structure, lexicon-grammar interaction, lexical variation, and lexical relation).
