Euskara Institutua

The Institute for the Basque Language (IBL) is working on a scientific project aimed at creating an online encyclopaedia of the Basque language: grammar, dictionary, historical information, etc. Some parts of this project are already partially or wholly available online, namely:

  • Contemporary Reference Prose (CRP)
  • Dictionary of Standard Basque in Contemporary Prose (DSBCP)
  • The Lexicon, past and present (LPP)
  • Dictionary of Contemporary Basque (DCB)

In addition to these projects, the IBL has conducted workshops (2002, 2005, 2008, 2010, 2013) on terminology and has compiled a range of materials for teaching university courses in Basque. Also available is a grammar written in English

Given their nature, most of our projects are available in Basque. This explanation in English is intended to give the reader an idea of the type of work undertaken by the Institute.

It is currently the most used Spanish-Basque dictionary. Modern dictionary based, on the one hand, on texts in the historic Basque literary tradition since the 16th century but, above all, on texts by the most prestigious contemporary writers. It provides many ways of answering the linguistic demands of a modern urban society.

The original version was published in book form by the Alberdania publishing house, but parts of the dictionary have been subsequently updated, there is more all-round consultation in the electronic version and, if one wants, one can listen to examples.
