Abstract:

This guide to Portuguese usage covers the Brazilian and European
varieties of Portuguese, and differentiates clearly between them. It
pays special attention to those areas of vocabulary and grammar which
cause most difficulty to English-speakers and also includes a special
chapter for students familiar with Spanish, highlighting similarities
and differences between the two languages. Consideration is given
throughout to questions of style and register. The text is an
essential reference for intermediate as well as more advanced
students.
