This article gives a brief presentation of the Reference Corpus of Present day Portuguese (CRPC), that is in the process of being built at the University of Lisbon. It presents the reasons justifying its creation (among which the geographical scattering of the speakers of Portuguese), the principles that underlie the building of the corpus and the various ways in which it may be used.
