The Portuguese language in Brazil

Portuguese is a Romance language in the Indo-European language family. It has more than 200 million native speakers and is the official language of almost 20 countries, including Brazil.

Etymologically, Portuguese extends back to Galician-Portuguese, which emerged on its own as a language in the early Middle Ages. With the formation of Portugal, it gained its status as a world language. With the great geographical discovery and the Portuguese Empire’s colonisation movement, Portuguese attained official language status in many regions of the world.

Brazilian Portuguese

With the construction of the colonial empire, the Portuguese language came to Brazil, making it the only Portuguese-speaking country in the Americas. Vast stretches of Brazilian coastline had already become Portuguese colonies by the early Middle Ages.

However, the Portuguese spoken in Brazil gradually developed many unique characteristics that made it clearly distinguishable from the Portuguese spoken in other parts of the world. For example, it differs from the variant spoken in the European motherland through various modifications in the accent, as well as in its orthography and grammar.
