Adam Kilgarriff

I'm a scientist who has set up and runs a small company. I'm married (to Gill Lamden) with three children, Boris (22), Maddie (18) and Raffie (9) (as at today, 28 January 2015, in case I forget to update!) We live in Brighton, UK. Last November (2014) I found I had bowel cancer (stage 5; not curable; only 'manageable'). We've been adjusting to that since (and it is what provoked me to start the blog) My scientific area is linguistics, with my specialisms being corpus linguistics, computational linguistics, and lexicography - or, best of all, the intersection of all three. Since 2004, my company, Lexical Computing Ltd., has been providing a web service, the Sketch Engine, to linguists and lexicographers wanting to find out about words, using corpus-driven methods. Customers include Oxford University Press, Cambridge University Press, Collins, Macmillan, Le Robert, Dictionary.com and around a hundred universities worldwide.

  1. I never met Adam’s family but I would want to offer my deepest condolences to all of you. He was a great scholar. May his soul rest in peace, and may Allah grant you patience to endure his loss.

  2. My deepest condolences to Adam’s family and friends.
    I’ll keep very fond memories of Adam as a cheerful, dynamic, intelligent and kind person.
    And as a frequent user of some of the tools he developped, I’m grateful for somebody of his calibre to have contributed so much to the field of corpus-based lexicography.
