International Journal of Lexicography Special Issue: The Legacy of John Sinclair Guest edited by Patrick Hanks John Sinclair was the most radical thinker on the lexicon of the 20th century. His insights into the nature of collocations and discourse structure have inspired new ways of analysing meaning. He was never afraid to face up to awkward questions such as the vague and probabilistic nature of meaning and of evidence of word use. His insistence on close, detailed analysis of evidence played a major role in the development of the emerging discipline of corpus linguistics, now universally recognised as a cornerstone of modern lexicography. In this memorial issue, some of his leading former colleagues and admirers from Asia, Africa, and America as well as Britain and Europe, present a broad spectrum of papers inspired by the Sinclairian approach, ranging from practical dictionary making to new developments in linguistic theory.
