In this book, the authors provide an accurate description of the phonological system of Portuguese, comparing the main phenomena of the two most widely extended varieties of the language within the light of current phonological theories. This book's importance and interest lie in the unique characteristics that give Portuguese a special place among the Romance languages.

About the Author:


Maria Helena Mateus is Full Professor in the Faculty of Letters at the University of Lisbon. She has studied within the field of linguistics in both Portugal and Brazil, and between 1982 and 1998 gave seminars on Portuguese linguistics in Cape-Verde, Cuba, EUA, France, Germany, Ireland, Macau, Mozambique, and Sweden.

Ernesto d'Andrade is Associate Professor of Linguistics in the Faculty of Letters at the University of Lisbon. Prior to 1975 he taught in the universities of Paris VIII and Paris XIII.

Review:


"This is a much appreciated book for those of us who regularly teach a course on the synchronic phonology and morphophonology of Portuguese....The book is divided into clear modules, the data in each section being clearly presented in well-organised tables, always including examples covering each of the possible cases of interest....Mateus and d'Andrade have crafted a very easy to read, well-organised exposition of their favourite analyses quite suitable for a course in the structure of Portuguese phonology."--Phonology


...The Phonology of Portuguese will be of use to those who want an introduction to the basic issues in Portuguese phonology, especially for those who do not read portuguese. Likewise, it will serve as a useful reference since it brings together in one place analysis and discussion of a major phonological phenomena of the language.--Linguist

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2002. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Portuguese emerged from vulgar Latin during the course of the third century. Influential in its development were successive invasions by Germanic peoples, Visigoths, and Moors, the latter of whom were finally evicted in the thirteenth century. As a consequence of the newly-independent kingdom s imperial achievements, Portuguese is the national language of Brazil and the official language of several African countries. Maria Helena Mateus and Ernesto d Andrade present a broad description and comparative analysis of the phonetics and phonology of European and Brazilian Portuguese. They begin by introducing the history of Portuguese and its principal varieties. Chapter 2 describes the phonetic characteristics of consonants, vowels, and glides, and Chapter 3 looks at prosodic structure. Chapters 4 and 5 present the general characteristics of Portuguese nominal and verbal systems, the former considering inflectional and the latter derivational processes. Chapter 6 examines stress, main, secondary, and echo, and Chapter 7 describes phonological processes that are not related to the morphological structure of the word, including the peculiar process of nazalization. The authors deploy current theoretical models to explain the rich variety of Portuguese phonology and interrelated aspects of morphology. This is by far the most comprehensive account of the subject to have appeared in English, and the most up-to-date in any language. Seller Inventory # AAV9780199256709
