ésAdir: el portal lingüístic de la CCMA

L’ aborda els dubtes més habituals d’ús del català als mitjans de comunicació de la Corporació Catalana de Mitjans Audiovisuals (CCMA).

Els continguts es revisen i s’amplien constantment, d’acord amb l’actualitat i les necessitats expressives diàries dels mitjans de la CCMA.

No hi trobareu ni totes les paraules del català (no és cap diccionari o gramàtica) ni tots els noms propis rellevants (no és cap enciclopèdia), sinó només els casos que han generat algun dubte d’ús, de grafia o de pronúncia als mitjans de la Corporació.
