1 Portuguese: A Linguistic Introduction

Milton M. Azevedo

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 2005, 0-521-80515-5 / 9780521805155, First Edition, Paperback, New, 247 x 174 Mm 
This accessible new book provides a comprehensive introduction to the linguistic structure of Portuguese. Clearly organised, it covers the central topics of syntax, phonology, morphology, semantics and pragmatics, and explores the social and historical background of Portuguese, its development and spread in the world, and related sociolinguistic issues such as dialect variation and language planning. It also includes a chapter on Portuguese in Brazil, where approximately 80% of Portuguese speakers live. Assuming very little prior knowledge of linguistic terminology, Portuguese: A Linguistic Introduction is designed to help intermediate and advanced students of Portuguese understand how the language functions at all levels, and to give students of linguistics a useful starting point for work on the structure of Portuguese. Keeping linguistic theory to a minimum, it focuses on presenting the linguistic facts in a clear and lucid way, providing a useful global overview of the Portuguese language and its surrounding issues. ?A linguistic overview of the language, taking into account its variation in the various places where it is spoken ?Contains a specific chapter on Brazilian Portuguese, which accounts for about 80% of the speakers of the language ?Linguistic theory kept to a minimum to facilitate focusing on the facts of the language rather than on theory Contents 1. Portuguese in the world; 2. The sounds of Portuguese; 3. Words; 4. Sentences; 5. Portuguese in time; 6. The expansion of European Portuguese; 7. Brazilian Portuguese; 8. Sociolinguistic issues. Printed Pages: 354 with 1 line diagram, 48 tables, and 3 maps. 012814

Using Portuguese: A Guide to Contemporary Usage, Ana Sofia Ganho and Timothy McGovern
3 Using Portuguese: A Guide to Contemporary Usage

Ana Sofia Ganho and Timothy McGovern

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 2004, 0-521-79663-6 / 9780521796637, First Edition, Paperback, New, 238 x 169 Mm 
This is a guide to Portuguese usage for students who have already acquired the basics of the language and wish to extend their knowledge. It covers both the Brazilian and the European varieties of the language, and differentiates clearly between them. It gives detailed explanations of grammatical structures and semantic fields and, unlike conventional grammars, it gives special attention to those areas of vocabulary and grammar which cause most difficulty to English-speakers. It also contains a special chapter for students who are familiar with Spanish, highlighting key similarities and differences between the two languages. Careful consideration is given throughout to questions of style, register, and politeness which are essential to achieving an appropriate level of formality or informality in writing and speech. Clear, readable and easy to consult via its two indexes, this is an essential reference for learners seeking access to the finer nuances of the Portuguese language. ?The latest in our unique and highly successful series of books on contemporary language use ?Helps the intermediate learner grappling with issues of style and register in Portuguese; special chapter for students already familiar with Spanish provides guidance on similarities and differences ?Clearly laid out with two indexes (Portuguese and English) for ease of access Contents 1. Introduction; 2. Written expression; 3. Vocabulary; 4. Nouns and adjectives; 5. Verbs; 6. Reported speech; 7. Pronouns and articles; 8. Adverbs; 9. Comparatives and superlatives; 10. Interrogatives (Questions); 11. Fields of meaning - vocabulary extension; 12. Portuguese for Spanish speakers; Portuguese index; English index. Printed Pages: 274. 012826
