Created by Mark Davies, BYU.
Funded by the US National Endowment for the Humanities
(2004, 2015). Part of the BYU collection of
WordAndPhrase-Portuguese allows you to search and
browse through the top 40,000 words in Portuguese (based on frequency in the
corpus). For each word, you can see detailed information (all on one page) --
definition, synonyms, frequency by genre, frequency by country,
collocates (nearby words, which give great insight into meaning and
usage), topics (co-occurring words on the same web pages), and 200 sample
concordance lines (to see the patterns in which it occurs) -- all with
useful links from one word to another.
You can also enter and analyze entire texts,
such as the content of a web page, or a composition written by a student. It
will show you the keywords from the text (based on frequency in the CdP),
and you can click on any word in the text to see detailed information, as
discussed above. You can also highlight phrases in your text and have it
search for related phrases in the Corpus do PortuguÍs, which helps in getting
things to sound "just right".
