The project has been funded for three years (June 2015 - June 2018) by the universitary consortium Sorbonne Paris Cité, which groups several research units of Paris universities (LIPN, LDI, CLILLAC-ARP, ERTIM), the participants to the EMPNEU group and the University of Sao Paulo (Brasil).
The platform combines state-of-the-art processes to track linguistic changes and a web platform for linguists to create and manage their corpora, accept or reject automatically identified neologisms, describe linguistically the accepted neologisms and follow their lifecycle on the monitor corpora.
At present, eleven languages are concerned, i.e. French, Greek, Polish, Czech, Brasilian Portuguese, Chinese, Russian, Italian, Spagnish, German and Dutch.
The project gave birth to conferences, books and international papers.
The results of this project, in particular the neologisms retrieved (more than 10.000 for French, at the moment) are shared on the www.neoveille.org website. Thus, all the users can observe new words that are starting to spread in the various languages, along with the contexts in which these words appear: it is an opportunity to think about changes in languages and societies.
