An Investigation of Spoken Brazilian Portuguese: Part I, Technical Report. Final Report.
Hutchins, John A.
This final report of a study which developed a working corpus of spoken and written Portuguese from which syntactical studies could be conducted includes computer-processed data on which the findings and analysis are based. A data base, obtained by taping some 487 conversations between Brazil and the United States, serves as the corpus from which a frequency list of some 2,000 words is derived. A print-out of the Key-Word-in-Context is also developed and intended for use by linguistic researchers. Descriptions of experimental procedures, findings, and recommendations are included. Supportive technical data and experimental information are appended. (RL)
