On the Mutual Intelligibility of Spanish and Portuguese.
Jensen, John B.
Hispania, v72 n4 p848-52 Dec 1989
A study examining native Spanish-speaking college students' comprehension of Portuguese, and Portuguese-speaking students' comprehension of Spanish found that the two languages were mutually intelligible at a 50 to 60 percent level. Portuguese speakers tended to understand Spanish better than Spanish speakers understood Portuguese. (CB)
