Institute of Lexicography marks its 65th anniversary

The Miroslav Krleza Institute of Lexicography celebrated the 65th anniversary of its establishment this past Thursday, and on that occasion, the institute was praised as the only institution in Croatia that is engaged in lexicographic work in a systematic fashion.

During its existence in the last 65 years, the Institute has published over 50 lexicographic editions, the current director of the Institute, Antun Vujic, said at the ceremony in Zagreb. He said that the Institute would start making its heritage available online.

The institute was set up on 5 October 1950, at an initiative of  Miroslav Krleza, a Croatian novelist, essayist and critic. Since 1983, the Institute of Lexicography holds the name of its founder.

Currently, the Institute is working on a dozen of projects, including the preparation of a Croatian ethnological lexicon and a lexicon about theatres.
