Title: The Phonology of Portuguese
Written By: Maria Helena Mateus
URL: http://www.oup-usa.org/isbn/019823581X.html
Series Title: The Phonology of the World's Languages
Description:

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
