Collins Portuguese Dictionary

Introduction

We are delighted you have decided to buy the Collins Portuguese Dictionary and hope you will enjoy and benefit from using it at school, at home, on holiday or at work.

This introduction gives you a few tips on how to get the most out of your dictionary -- not simply from its comprehensive wordlist but also from the information provided in each entry. This will help you to read and understand modem Portuguese, as well as communicate and express yourself in the language.

The Collins Portuguese Dictionary begins by listing the abbreviations used in the text and illustrating the sounds shown by the phonetic symbols. Next you will find Portuguese verb tables and English irregular verbs followed by a section on numbers, time, and dates. Finally, the new Phrasefinder supplement gives you hundreds of useful phrases which are intended to give you practical help in everyday situations when travelling.
