ABSTRACT
Within the past decade several large, freely-available online corpora of Spanish and Portuguese have become available. With these new corpora, researchers of Spanish and Portuguese can now carry out the same type of corpus-based research that has been done for other languages (such as English) for years. This includes advanced research on morphological and syntactic variation (thanks to full functionality with substring searches, part of speech tagging, and lemmatization), semantics and pragmatics (via collocates, synonyms, customized word lists, and word comparisons), and historical changes and synchronic register variation (via architectures and interfaces that allow easy comparisons of frequency in different sections of the corpus).
