Book Information

   

Title: Portuguese
Subtitle: A Linguistic Introduction
Written By: Milton Azevedo
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/9780521805155
Description:

This accessible new book provides a comprehensive introduction to the
linguistic structure of Portuguese. Clearly organised, it covers the
central topics of syntax, phonology, morphology, semantics and pragmatics,
and explores the social and historical background of Portuguese, its
development and spread in the world, and related sociolinguistic issues
such as dialect variation and language planning. It also includes a chapter
on Portuguese in Brazil, where approximately 80% of Portuguese speakers
live. Assuming very little prior knowledge of linguistic terminology,
Portuguese: A Linguistic Introduction is designed to help intermediate and
advanced students of Portuguese understand how the language functions at
all levels, and to give students of linguistics a useful starting point for
work on the structure of Portuguese. Keeping linguistic theory to a
minimum, it focuses on presenting the linguistic facts in a clear and lucid
way, providing a useful global overview of the Portuguese language and its
surrounding issues.
