From Spanish to Portuguese.
Ulsh, Jack L.
This text is designed for native speakers of American English who have a good command of Spanish and want to acquire a knowledge of Portuguese. The manual focuses on features of Portuguese pronunciation, grammar, and vocabulary that have similar but not always identical counterparts in Spanish. Correspondences which often create interference for the student are pointed out and distinctions are clarified. Recordings are available. Part 1 concentrates on sounds, including the vowels, dipthongs, and consonants. Part 2 emphasizes the grammar, focusing attention on word order, negation, contractions, verbs, and nominals. The final sections contain hints on vocabulary transfer and supplementary pronunciation exercises. (RL)
