A Checklist of Phonological, Grammatical and Lexical Contrasts between Spanish and Portuguese.
Thogmartin, Clyde; Courteau, Joanna
A comparison of grammatical, lexical, and phonological differences between Spanish and Portuguese that resulted from a study of the two languages' mutual intelligibility is presented as a convenient list of items that assumes a basic language knowledge in the user. The information is presented in five sections: (1) phonological contrasts (phonemic and phonetic contrasts, suprasegmental differences, and rhythmic differences); (2) morphology (verb systems, pronouns, contractions, determiners, and plural formation); (3) syntax (questions, object pronouns, prepositions, main verb + gerund/infinitive constructions, the Portuguese future subjunctive and personal infinitive, and other syntactic contrasts); (4) usage (pronouns of address, object pronouns and their paraphrases, uses of the article, answers to yes/no questions, tense usages, and ser/estar); and (5) lexicon (false cognates, gender contrasts, and recognition of cognates).
