The lexicographer’s work, like painting the Forth bridge, is an endless task. In this lecture Gareth A. Bevan discusses some of the reasons why dictionaries need to be constantly revised to include new words and idioms, and outlines the changes to the Welsh language in the days of the Internet, e-mail, text messaging and blogs.
