    Have you tried the LabEL resources? : (click on
    Recursos Publicos).

    The labEL is giving away its data for research purpose:

    Dicionários de palavras simples
    -Dicionário de formas canónicas (cerca de 120 000 entradas)
    -Dicionário de formas flexionadas (cerca de um milhão)
    -Dicionário de siglas e acrónimos (cerca de 4 000)
    Dicionários de palavras compostas
    -Dicionário de nomes compostos (amostragem com 10 000 entradas)
    -Dicionário de advérbios compostos (amostragem com 1 000 entradas)
    -Dicionário de preposições compostas
    -Dicionário de conjunções compostas
    Their full resources are also available in an Open Source corpus processor: But in this case, you don't have access
    to the raw dictionaries directly (they are compressed).
