In this book, the authors provide an accurate description of the
phonological system of Portuguese, comparing the main phenomena of the
two most widely extended varieties of the language within the light of
current phonological theories. This book's importance and interest lie
in the unique characteristics that give Portuguese a special place
among the Romance languages.

Review of hardcover 
"This is a much appreciated book for those of us who regularly teach a
course on the synchronic phonology and morphophonology of
Portuguese....The book is divided into clear modules, the data in each
section being clearly presented in well-organised tables, always
including examples covering each of the possible cases of
interest....Mateus and d'Andrade have crafted a very easy to read,
well-organised exposition of their favorite analyses quite suitable
for a course in the structure of Portuguese phonology."--Phonology
