Subject: Romance linguistics: The Pronunciation of Brazilian Portuguese

The Pronunciation of Brazilian Portuguese
JAMES P. GIANGOLA

Faced with Portuguese words and phrases in writing, how does one
pronounce them as a Brazilian would? Unfortunately for non-native
speakers, the Portuguese spelling system presumes prior knowledge of
particular phonological and morphological principles, unlike the more
closely phonetic sound-spelling system of Spanish. The Pronunciation
of Brazilian Portuguese addresses this problem. Sound-spelling
correspondence rules are exemplified via carefully organized word sets
accompanied by phonetic transcriptions.

This resource is intended for students of Portuguese and the Romance
language family, linguists, speech technology scientists, business
people, travelers, and anyone interested in knowing what it is that
Brazilians do to sound Brazilian. It is thorough in its coverage of
formal, colloquial, and non-standard patterns. Content ranges from
the pronunciation of specific consonants, vowels, and diphthongs, to
syllabification, connected speech, word stress, and rhythm. In
addition, one chapter reviews written accent rules, another a spelling
reform that has been proposed but not yet legislated. Two word-list
appendices are devoted to the single most difficult area of
pronunciation for non-native-speakers: stressed e and o. Two other
appendices focus on non-standard, regional patterns.
