    The 1st Multilinguality in the Lexicon Workshop took place in April 1996 as part of the AISB workshop series at Sussex, and brought together researchers with a wide range of experiences in multilingual lexicon development. This second MLL workshop will follow up on some of the work presented there, as well as introducing other work on multilinguality in the lexicon.

    The workshop will run for one day as part of ECAI-98 in Brighton, UK. There will be two blocks of three papers, each followed by a led discussion session.
