On 23rd January 2020, EMLex students travelled to Frühneuhochdeutsches Wörterbuch (early new high German dictionary), a project of the Göttingen Academy of Sciences and Humanities, where they received a guided tour by Dr. Andrea Moshövel. Besides the history of the project, the programme also entailed some dictionary work: the students were asked to brood over corpus attestations, trying to find out the meaning of the early new high German texts. The excursion to the Göttingen Academy takes place every winter term, including EMLex students from the first and third semester.
