A popular Latin phrase says that words have value as much as money (verba valent sicut nummi). The word and words in the humanities are perceived as a nominal currency the movement of which is under the auspices of the philological thought.

The International Classical Philology Biennial Conference Antiquitas Viva, paying special attention to classical languages, welcomes its participants to research, describe and share the experience and conclusions about various manifestations of the word, from its functioning in a dictionary and “behind the scene” of compilation of the dictionary till the relationships between the word and the text.

Words, considering the social and cultural relations of a particular historical period, create texts and contexts. The variety of the created meanings should be reflected in the dictionary, i.e. in the tool that records the grammatical and semantic picture of the language.
