Introduction

Understanding Portuguese

You will also find, for ease of consultation, irregular forms of Portuguese verbs and nouns with a cross-reference to the basic form where a translation is given.

Self-expression in Portuguese

To help you express yourself correctly and idiomatically in Portuguese, numerous indications -- think of them as signposts -- guide you to the most appropriate translation for your context. All the most commonly used words are given detailed treatment, with many examples of typical usage.

A working companion

Much care has been taken to make this new Collins dictionary thoroughly reliable, easy to use and relevant to your work and study. We hope it will become a long-serving companion for all your foreign language needs.
