A 1949 study by Italian-American linguist Mario Pei, analyzing the degree of difference from a language's parent (Latin, in the case of Romance languages) by comparing phonology, inflection, syntax, vocabulary, and intonation, indicated the following percentages (the higher the percentage, the greater the distance from Latin):[1] In the case of Spanish it was 20%, the third closest Romance language to Latin, only behind Sardinian (8% distance) and Italian (12% distance).

It is often said that the gaúcho, nordestino and amazofonia dialects, as well as some sociolects elsewhere, such as that in and around the city of Santos, have preserved tu; but unlike in fluminense, the use of você is very limited, and entirely absent among some speakers, and tu takes its place. Similar diphthongizations can be found in other Romance languages (French pierre, Italian pietra, Romanian piatră; French meurt, Italian muore, Romanian moare), but in Galician-Portuguese these vowels underwent a qualitative change instead (Portuguese/Galician pedra, morre), becoming lower, as also happened with short i and short u in stressed syllables.

Portuguese, uniquely among the major Romance languages, has acquired a "personal infinitive", which can be used as an alternative to a subordinate clause with a finite verb in the subjunctive. In Brazilian Portuguese, these forms are uncommon, since the pronoun normally precedes the verb (i.e., você o mantenha in the above example), and third-person subject pronouns are used informally as object pronouns (mantenha ele), which has been proved to be present in the language since Galician-Portuguese times. lucrum; < Lat.

Mutual intelligibility is greater between the written languages than between the spoken forms. Latin American Spanish is more complicated: vosotros has fallen out of use in favor of ustedes, but certain regions of Spanish America also use vos as a singular informal pronoun, displacing tú out of its original role to a greater or lesser extent (see voseo). It is now much influenced by standard Castilian Spanish. Standard Spanish has a basic vowel phonological system, with five phonemic vowels (/a/, /e̞/, /i/, /o̞/, /u/). This is probably one of the most common language-related misconceptions. The vowels written ⟨a⟩, ⟨e⟩ and ⟨o⟩ are pronounced in different ways according to several factors, most notably whether they are stressed, and whether they occur in the last syllable of a word. This leads to some orthographic disparities: In Spanish, the plosives b, d, g are lenited, usually realized as "soft" approximants [β̞, ð̞, ɣ̞] (here represented without the undertracks) after continuants. Nevertheless, in many Brazilian dialects (mostly in the Northeast) and in casual Brazilian Portuguese the article is not used in sentences such as: Este é meu irmão (although it usually reappears in sentences such as "O meu irmão está lá"). See also Spanish verbs: Contrasting the preterite and the perfect. For example, todos juntos 'all together'. Both languages have a construction similar to the English "going-to" future. The diaeresis or trema ( ¨ ) is used in Spanish to indicate ⟨u⟩ is pronounced in the sequence ⟨gu⟩; e.g., desagüe [deˈsaɣwe]. When Spain was under the fascist dictatorship of Franco, he insisted that the language spoken in Castillia was "Spanish" and everything else spoken within the borders of Spain was a "dialect". More conservative in this regard is the fluminense dialect of Brazilian Portuguese (spoken in Rio de Janeiro, Espírito Santo and in the Zona da Mata of the state of Minas Gerais) – especially its carioca sociolect. The letter ⟨y⟩ was used in Portuguese from the 16th to the early 20th century in Greek loans, much as in English (e.g., Psychologia, modern Psicologia 'Psychology'). No, it is a different language entirely. Although I have met Portuguese speaking people (Brazilian and Portuguese) and I noted that there are various similarities between the two languages it just never occurred to me to think of Portuguese as a dialect of Spanish. I'm a native Portuguese speaker and I think Portuguese, Spanish, Galego and even Català would likely be considered to be "dialects of the same language" by most criteria, were it not for cultural and political factors. Various word endings are consistently different in the two languages. vincere; < Lat. stabilire; < Lat. 2Modern Portuguese has for the most part kept the medieval spelling.

I don't think Spanish and Portuguese are any more different than are Swiss-German and standard German, but Gutenburg was German so there you go. are dialects of Latin. Portuguese, as Catalan, uses vowel height, contrasting stressed and unstressed (reduced) vowels. Brazilian Portuguese uses the trigraph ⟨tch⟩ /tʃ/ for loanwords; e.g., tchau, 'ciao', tcheco 'Czech', República Tcheca 'Czech Republic', tchê 'che' (this latter is regional), etc. While this is true of all colloquial BP, it is especially characteristic of the latter dialects). In these areas, the verb with tu is conjugated in the third-person form (as with você) – except among educated speakers in some urban centers such as Porto Alegre and, especially, Belém. This distinction is not made in English and Brazilian Portuguese[citation needed]. Also Spanish has taken ⟨sh⟩ /ʃ/ from English as a loan sound; e.g., sherpa, show, flash. iacere → S. yacer, P. jazer (both archaic), caelum → S. cielo, P. céu (arch.

And the preposition a combines with the "distal" demonstratives (those that begin with a-) to form àquele, àquilo, etc. It features letter h pronunciation, elided consonants and aspirated ‘s’. This still applies in cases where a relatively indeterminate subject is genderized, such as the Spanish todos a una [voz] ('all at once', literally 'all at one [voice]'). As the Portuguese grave accent, the trema does not indicate stress. Many dialects have special characteristics. Similar alternation patterns to these exist in other Romance languages such as Catalan and Occitan. αὐτο), auto repair centre, repair garage, workshop, empresa; compañía; sociedad, negocio (< Lat. The dialect is used in the British territory of Gibraltar, and its location on the Iberian Peninsula and status as a British territory is a large reason for the unusual mix of influences it arose from. The old familiar forms have been largely lost in the Portuguese-speaking world, as the Portuguese equalizing forms você or vocês have displaced tu to a large extent and vós almost entirely; and even where tu is still used, the second-person verb forms that historically corresponded to it are often replaced by the same (third-person) forms that are used with "você". Although it is spoken by less people than Spanish (Portuguese has 220 million native speakers), it actually reaches more continents as it is used as an official language in countries on 4 continents compared to Spanish's 3. rarus; < Lat. Some examples: Another consequence (though less common) is that some words are written exactly (or almost exactly) the same in both languages, but the stress falls on different syllables: Although the vocabularies of Spanish and Portuguese are similar, the two languages differ phonologically from each other, very likely because of the stronger Celtic substratum[142] in Portuguese. Llanito So in Spanish—to paraphrase Shakespeare—the question is: ‘to be or to be’? Both meanings usually exist also in Portuguese, but with one and the same gender, so that they can't be differentiated unless further information is provided. Spanish maintains such a difference only in fui 'I was' vs. fue 'he was'. In the first and third person singular, the personal infinitive appears no different from the unconjugated infinitive. Portuguese drops -e in "irregular" third-person singular present indicative forms after ⟨z⟩ and ⟨r⟩, according to phonological rules: faz 'he does', diz 'he says', quer 'he wants', etc. The tables above represent only general trends with many exceptions, due to: Portuguese has tended to eliminate hiatuses that were preserved in Spanish, merging similar consecutive vowels into one (often after the above-mentioned loss of intervocalic -l- and -n-). Spanish and Portuguese have acquired different words from various Amerindian, African and Asian languages, as in the following examples: Like with most European languages, both Spanish and Portuguese acquired numerous Greek words mainly related to sciences, arts and humanities: Unlike the other Romance languages, modern Portuguese does not use the Roman planetary system for the days Monday through Friday. The two major ones are Castilian and Latin American Spanish, which includes Mexican and Puerto Rician. botelha, Sp. botella) Port. Às is used for the plural (a las in Spanish).

This has led to the use of meia (meaning meia dúzia, 'half a dozen') for seis [sei̯s] 'six' when making enumerations, to avoid any confusion with três [tɾei̯s] 'three' on the telephone. Comparing the phonemic inventory of the two languages, a noticeable divergence stands out. 1 Always nasalized in this environment in most dialects, that is, [ɐ̃ ~ ə̃]. Portuguese is a very rich language in terms of dialects, each with its particularity. The Chinese language, on the other hand, is comprised of a number of dialects that aren’t always mutually intelligible. However, both languages originated from Vulgar Latin, which is also the parent language to Italian as well as other Romance Languages.

The Colombian Spanish dialect came to be that way because the Colombian capital of Bogota, even as a Spanish colony, was an important viceroyalty, important enough to acquire its own university for higher learning, as well as other cultural and religious institutions. In Portuguese, verbs in the future indicative or conditional tense may be split into morphemes, and the clitic pronoun can be inserted between them, a feature known as mesoclisis. But the Spanish word is masculine when used with the first meaning, and feminine with the second: In Portuguese, the equivalent word ordem is always feminine: Without additional context, it is impossible to tell which meaning was intended in Portuguese and English (though other words could be substituted; in English, one would likely use orderliness in the first case above rather than order, which would, by itself, suggest the second case).
