In this paper I present briefly Linguateca, an infrastructure project for Portuguese which is ten years old, and will show how it provides several possibilities to study grammatical and semantical differences between varieties of the language. After a short history of Portuguese corpus linguistics, presenting the main projects in the area, I discuss in some(More)
Using standard methods and formats established at LADL, and adopted by several European research teams to construct largecoverage electronic dictionaries and grammars, we elaborated for Portuguese a set of lexlcal resources, that were implemented in IN'rEX We describe the main features of such linguistic data, refer to their mmntenance and extension, and(More)
The paper describes Portuguese large-scale linguistic resources, mainly computational lexicons and grammars, developed by LabEL. These resources are formalized and applied to texts by means of finite-state techniques, more and more acknowledged in Natural Language Processing. On the one hand, it illustrates methods on lexical representation for simple words(More)
SUMMARY In this paper we present the state of development of DIGRAMA, a system of electronic dictionaries and grammars of Portuguese. We describe brieey the general characteristics of the system, concentrating then on the analysis of two dictionary modules: DIGRAS and DIGRAF.

Syntactic Variation of Support Verb Constructions We report experiments about the syntactic variations of support verb constructions, a special type of<lb>multiword expressions (MWEs) containing predicative nouns. In these expressions, the noun can oc-<lb>cur with or without the verb, with no clear-cut semantic difference. We extracted from a large(More)
In this paper, we present the current state of development of a large-scale lexicon built at LabEL1 for Portuguese. We will concentrate on multiword expressions (MWE), particularly on multiword nouns, (i) illustrating their most relevant morphological features, and (ii) pointing out the methods and techniques adopted to generate the inflected forms from(More)
Like common noun phrases, proper names contain ambiguous conjoined phrases that make their delimitation and classification difficult in text. This paper presents a finite-state approach to the disambiguation of Portuguese candidate proper name strings containing the coordinating conjunction e (and). In such name strings, the conjunction can denote a(More)
