BrasiLEX is a multifunctional monolingual lexicon of the Brazilian variety of Portuguese, developed by the Natural Language Group of INESC. It has about 65,000 entries (lemmas) and 1,600 correspondent inflexion paradigms. The set of entries includes compound words and the inflexion paradigms include information regarding enclitics and augmentative/diminutive degree. Morphological information is encoded with maximum granularity and is conformant with the EAGLES recommendations.

Note: LusoLEX (ELRA-L0033) and BrasilLEX (ELRA-L0034) were designed with the same architecture and format. Each of these lexicons is complete and independent. Therefore, there is a set of entries that are identical in both of them, because they correspond to lexical items used in both national varieties, some of which have different morphological classification. Others, even when used in both National Varieties, are not included in one of them because its frequency of use does not justify it.
