Topics : The Lexikoaren Behatokia project (X. Artola) + Enriching EDBL with Hiztegi Batua (Gorka Labaka – Xabier Artola)
Speakers: Xabier Artola and Gorka Labaka
Day: December 11th 2013, Wednesday

The Basque language academy, Euskaltzaindia, launched in 2008 the Lexikoaren Behatokia project (“The Lexicon Observatory”), led by Andoni Sagarna. The objective of the project was to create a labelled and linguistically annotated corpus for research. In order to carry out the corpus, it was expected to use a variety of sources, mostly media, especially general interest ones. In late 2012, the corpus consisted of 26,565,924 words, and has been expanded year after year. Euskaltzaindia, the IXA research group, the Elhuyar foundation and UZEI collaborate on the project.

The Lexikoaren Behatokia corpus is available here.

On the other hand, the latest version of the prescriptive dictionary Hiztegi Batua has provided new entries for the Basque lexical database EDBL. This enriching process was explained in the seminar.
