BeschreibungThis accessible new book provides a comprehensive introduction to the linguistic structure of Portuguese, designed to help intermediate and advanced students of Portuguese understand how the language functions at all levels. 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 sociolinguistic issues such as dialect variation and language planning. Assuming little prior knowledge of linguistic terminology, it provides a useful global overview of Portuguese and its surrounding issues.
