Overview

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.
