ACADEMY ACTIVITIES

I.5. Lexical Observatory project The Unified Basque Dictionary working group saw that a more extensive corpus was required to meet the demands of contemporary Basque, and that this corpus should uninterruptedly collect contemporary texts. The new corpus being written by the working group is the consequence of this realisation: the Lexical Observatory. The Academy will develop it in conjunction with UZEI, Elhuyar and the University of the Basque Country’s Ixa working group. 7,748,831 words from texts have been catalogued (100,000 words more than had been foreseen). 14,214 articles have also been catalogued. Euskaltzaindia has signed agrrements with many media -Berria, Argia, EiTB, Deia, Noticias de Gipuzkoa and Diario Vasco- in order to have access to the texts they produce in Basque.
