This volume brings together chapters written by specialists in North
America, Europe and Brazil. It includes original research about the
acquisition (L1, bilingualism) and acquisition/learning (L2 or L3) of
dialects of Brazilian and European Portuguese. In an effort to maximize
volume cohesion, the emphasis has been on contributions that present
studies exploring both empirical/experimental and theoretical aspects of
the acquisition of syntax, and its interfaces with morphology, with
semantics/pragmatics, and with language change.

Within the generative paradigm alone there are various volumes on the
acquisition of other languages, but there are no volumes currently in print
focusing on the acquisition of Portuguese. We believe that it is time for
such a volume, considering among other factors that Portuguese is the
second most widely spoken Romance language (second only to Spanish), and
the seventh most widely spoken language in the world.

In addition, the significant changes that have taken place between
Brazilian and European Portuguese especially since the 19th century make
the inquiry into the acquisition of the different dialects a source for
very productive insights about the connections between linguistic theory,
language acquisition and language change. Finally, having a collection of
high quality articles in one place pays homage to the importance for
linguistic research of investigations into the acquisition of the
Portuguese language.
