It is an online information centre which includes bibliographical, linguistic and documental data concerning the lexicon of Ibero-Romance languages and dialects. It consists of three related data banks from which you have open access to: compiled bibliographical references (Bibliography Bank), information on lexemes which have been analysed in scientific studies (Lexical Bank), and textual and lexicographical documentary evidence of lexical items (Documentary Bank).

The information gathered in this Portal is expanded and updated periodically. Users are invited to send suggestions about its implementation and/or the data assembled to the following e-mail address: sem.filologia.informatica@uab.cat.
