Portuguese Large-Scale Language Resources for NLP Applications

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 and multi-word expressions; on the other hand, it provides examples (in form of concordances) of linguistic structures recognized after the application of disambiguation and parsing grammars to texts. The paper ends with a short reference to the publicly available data highlighting its contribution towards dissemination of LabEL?s knowledge on language technology
