About the book:

A comprehensive modern Portuguese grammar written for the English-speaking reader. It covers in detail all the patterns of modern Portuguese as spoken and written in Brazil, focusing on those points which are especially challenging for the English-speaking student, such as the use of the subjunctive, use of the definite article, preterite versus imperfect verb forms, prepositions, and many others. There are examples to clarify every topic and an extensive index is included. The key features of the volume are: it focuses on the needs of the English-speaking reader; it incorporates the results of linguistic research in jargon-free language; it emphasizes modern spoken Brazilian usage; it describes Brazilian pronunciation in detail; it devotes a separate chapter to spelling problems; and it discusses trends of the modern spoken language.
