Modern Brazilian Portuguese Grammar: A Practical Guide (Modern Grammars)

Product Description

Modern Brazilian Portuguese Grammar: A Practical Guide (Modern Grammars) by John Whitlam

Modern Brazilian Portuguese Grammar: A Practical Guide is an innovative reference guide to Brazilian Portuguese, combining traditional and function-based grammar in a single volume.

The Grammar is divided into two parts. Part A covers traditional grammatical categories such as agreement, nouns, verbs and adjectives. Part B is carefully organized around language functions covering all major communication situations such as establishing identity, making contact and expressing likes, dislikes and preferences.

With a strong emphasis on contemporary usage, all grammar points and functions are richly illustrated with examples. Building on the success of the first edition, this second edition also includes:

  •  An introduction to the history and current status of Brazilian Portuguese
  • Notes for Spanish speakers pointing out the main grammatical differences between the two languages
  • Additional explanation and exemplification of areas of particular difficulty for learners. 

A combination of reference grammar and practical usage manual, Modern Brazilian Portuguese Grammar is the ideal source for learners of Brazilian Portuguese at all levels, from beginner to advanced.
