The Lexiculture Papers are an open-access collection of student scholarship on the relationship between modern English words and their historical and social contexts.   The papers represent original research using methods and approaches from linguistic anthropology, dialectology, corpus linguistics, historical sociolinguistics, and cultural studies.  The goal of the project is to demonstrate the viability of student-directed research on words that is both rigorous and accessible.

The editor of the project is Dr. Stephen Chrisomalis, and all the papers are housed here at Glossographia.
