Lexikos (Greek for "of or for words") is a journal for the lexicographical specialist and has been published by the Bureau of the WAT in the AFRILEX Series since 1991. In 1996 it became the mouthpiece of the African Association for Lexicography which is at present the joint publisher of Lexikos.

Lexikos is the only journal in Africa which is exclusively devoted to lexicography. Articles may be written in Afrikaans, English, Dutch, German and French.



Lexikos 27 was the last volume that is available in print.

The printed version of Lexikos will be phased out.  Lexikos 27 was therefore the last volume in paper format. Future volume will only be available online.
