Subject: European Portuguese Lexical Database


I would like to know whether there are any lexical databases for modern European Portuguese suited to find out about word frequencies. If anyone knows of such a resource, I would really appreciate knowing where I could find one.

Thanks a lot, Silvia Lipski

Dear Colleagues,

Often the nature of a speech phenomenon can be communicated so much better with the use of an example. Does anybody know of journals in linguistics (or subfields of) that offer the option to embed sound files in the electronic (pdf or html) version of papers?

I'll post a summary.

Sincerely, Bert Remijsen
