The paper examines the attitudes and language conceptions of dominating and non-dominating language communities of pluricentric languages which differ in many ways. It is shown that in dominating nations the one-nation-one-language concept is an undisputed basic concept which is shared by most speakers of these varieties and brings about a clear distinction between linguistic „standard“ and „nonst. http://hdl.handle.net/10451/30787.

We present in this paper an experiment in automatically tagging a set of Portuguese modal verbs with modal information. Modality is the expression of the speaker's (or the subject's) attitude towards the content of the sentences and may be marked with lexical clues such as verbs, adverbs, adjectives, but also by mood and tense. Here we focus exclusively on 9 verbal clues that are frequent in Portu. http://hdl.handle.net/10451/30698.
