Participating institutions:

Start: October, 2017
End: September, 2018

The main goal of the project RECAP is the enlargement and improvement of the current version of the Learner Corpus of Portuguese as Foreign/Second Language (COPLE2).

The corpus will be enriched with new written texts produced by students of PFL/L2 courses in the Instituto de Cultura e Língua Portuguesa (ICLP – FLUL). The process of compilation, encoding and annotation will follow the procedures already set in previous stages of development of the corpus. We will focus on improving the balance in corpus composition, taking into account not only the L1 of the learners but also the topic/task of the text. We will add also a control corpus with texts produced by native speakers of Portuguese.

The project is funded by Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian as part of the program for Portuguese Language and Culture (PGLCP). It results from a partnership between several institutions such as ICLP, CAPLE and Centro de Linguística da Universidade de Lisboa (CLUL).
