  • Conference paper
Computational Processing of the Portuguese Language (PROPOR 2008)

Part of the book series: Lecture Notes in Computer Science ((LNAI,volume 5190))


In this paper, we describe the resumption of activities of Floresta Sintá(c)tica, a treebank for Portuguese. We present some underlying guidelines around the project and how they influence our linguistic choices. We then describe the new texts added to the treebank, proceed to mention the new syntactic information added to the old texts, and finally describe the new user-friendly search system and the plans for its expansion.
