Under the theme “La Lessicografia araba, intreccio di lingue, culture e civiltà” [Arabic lexicography, an intertwining of languages, cultures and civilisations], the event took place between 17 and 19 of March 2022.
Integrated in the panel “Etymology and Study of Terminology”, Manuel Célio Conceição presented the communication “Terminologies in Portuguese: Arabic Ethnological Effects”, on the second day of the event.

This edition has brought together academics, linguists, experts in lexicography and etymology, literary critics, historians, translators and poets from fourteen different countries (eight of which are Arabic), to mark the birth of the great dictionary of the Arabic language and to identify lexicography as a space for dialogue between cultures and languages.
