It is a great honour for me, as the newly elected President of AFRILEX, to address the readers of Lexikos. Considering the complete dedication with which my three predecessors - Rufus Gouws, Danie Prinsloo and Mariëtta Alberts - performed the job, I will have a hard time matching their extraordinary leadership. When one reads through their introductory words that have appeared in Lexikos since Volume 6 (1996), it is pleasing to recognize the pet subjects of each: Rufus has never shied away from raising lexicographic theory, Danie took a more practical and organizational angle, while Mariëtta focused on the sub-discipline of terminology. Every scholar has a hobby-horse; mine is to turn our endeavours into publications that will stand up to the ravages of time. In that, we are particularly fortunate to have Lexikos.
