Abstract

The 2016 CICLing conference was dedicated to the memory of Adam Kilgarriff who died the year before. Adam leaves behind a tremendous scientific legacy and those working in computational linguistics, other fields of linguistics and lexicography are indebted to him. This paper is a summary review of some of Adam’s main scientific contributions. It is not and cannot be exhaustive. It is written by only a small selection of his large network of collaborators. Nevertheless we hope this will provide a useful summary for readers wanting to know more about the origins of work, events and software that are so widely relied upon by scientists today, and undoubtedly will continue to be so in the foreseeable future.
