Contemporary Phonology in Brazil is a collection of phonological studies in
Brazilian Portuguese and Indigenous Brazilian Languages which are developed
in Prosodic Phonology, Historical Change, Segmental Phonology, First
Language Acquisition and Indigenous Languages.

The Prosodic Phonology is present in the following works about Brazilian
Portuguese: Accommodation of intonational patterns in short utterances:
compression or truncation; The stress of non-verbs in the Multidimensional
Metrical Plane and Secondary stress, vowel reduction and rhythmic

The Historical Change is the subject of Sandhi: a comparative study between
Archaic and Brazilian Portuguese; Clitic prosodization in Brazilian
Portuguese: analysis of documents from the nineteenth century and
Faithfulness demotion in the historical phonology of Portuguese: a
constraint-based account.

The Segmental Phonology is the base of The nominal metaphony of Brazilian
Portuguese in the light of the Optimality Theory; Allomorphy in the
Brazilian Portuguese verbal system and Variable aspects of Brazilian
Portuguese phonology: laterals in coda position.

First Language Acquisition comprises two studies: Phonological acquisition
and phonological theory: formalizing patterns considering features and
segments and Optimal geometries in the acquisition of Portuguese

Indigenous Languages are discussed in Brazilian Indigenous Languages: a
brief history and some hope for the future; The rhythm class hypothesis
and Indigenous Languages and The development of creaky voice in Munduruku.
