Palabras and Palavras
Linguistics professor Mark Davies (above) recently received a $200,000 National Endowment of the Humanities grant to develop two very large corpora of Spanish and Portuguese. Davies will expand his online Corpus of Spanish to 2 billion words from 21 Spanish-speaking countries and the Corpus of Portuguese to 1 billion words from four Portuguese-speaking countries. These two corpora will join the other corpora from corpus. byu.edu, which are used by more than 170,000 researchers and teachers each month.
