We are very grateful for every single contribution, and hope they will inspire others to contribute to the Lexicon as well.
We would also like to thank Catherine Nygren and Neil Fraistat for contributing to the Lexicon by finding a source for Fraistat’s definition of ‘contexture‘; Elli Bleeker for suggesting sources for the Lexicon’s To-Do-List and for pointing out a definition for ‘edition (critical)‘ I had overlooked in D’Iorio 2010; Vivien Friedrich (Arthur Schnitzler digital) for pointing me in the direction of Bodo Plachta’s Editionswissenschaft and for her help translating some of its concepts into English; Sakari Katajamäki of the Finnish Literature Society in Helsinki for directing me to his and Karina Lukin’s paper that included a useful definition for ‘textual scholarship‘; and Paulius Subačius for pointing out an error in a definition of textual scholar. Thanks also to Sakari, Annika Rockenberger, and Georg Vogeler for suggesting more useful links for the About page.
