Abstract:

This accessible introduction to the linguistic structure of Portuguese
looks at its social and historical background. In addition to covering the
central topics of syntax, phonology, morphology, semantics and pragmatics,
it explores the development of the language, the spread of Portuguese in
the world, and sociolinguistic issues such as dialect variation and
language planning. Keeping linguistic theory to a minimum, the book focuses
on presenting linguistic facts within a useful global survey of the
language and its issues.
