lexicographic magazine of Guido Gezelle (vol. 1, no. 1, May 1881 - vol. 15, no. 7, 1895), “een blad voor eigen-vlaamsche taalliefhebberije en voor eigenvlaamsche taalgeleerdheid”.
Loquela (= word, language) was published monthly on four pages with two columns, sometimes supplemented with additional pages. From time to time, Gezelle had one of his unpublished poems published on an insert. ‘Wetensweerdigheden’, initially a monthly and later a bimonthly supplement, appeared from vol. 6, no. 6 (1886) to vol. 10, no. 12 (1891); from vol. 10, no. 2 (1890) to vol. 10, no. 12 (1891) it was supplemented with ‘Taalwetenschappelijke Mingelmaren’ by Juliaan Claerhout.
From 1888 onwards, the magazine began to appear with a delay, gradually increasing to four years at the time of the publication of the last issue. Loquela was printed by Jules Demeester in Roeselare. Gezelle was almost solely responsible for the layout, although his former students Gustaaf Verriest (1843-1918) and Karel de Gheldere and his friend, lexicographer Leonardus L. de Bo, were also among the editors.
A very important source for Loquela was Gezelle's so-called ‘Woordentas’, a collection of about 100,000 cards with word explanations, for which the material was partly collected by Gezelle himself, partly also by a large group of collaborators.
Father Hyacinthus, a Carmelite friar from Ypres and friend of Gezelle, converted Loquela into a dictionary. Caesar Gezelle helped him with this and Jan Craeynest wrote an introduction. The dictionary appeared in 1907 and was later reprinted.
