Some Spanish words can be both masculine and feminine, with different meanings. And whichever you want to learn, they’re all mutually intelligible. Additionally, the prepositions de and em combine with the demonstrative adjectives and pronouns as shown below: The neuter demonstrative pronouns (isto 'this' isso, aquilo 'that') likewise combine with de and em – thus, disto, nisto, etc. You could say that all the Romance languages (Portuguese, Spanish, French, Italian, Rumanian, etc.) The possessive pronouns are preceded by a definite article in all dialects of both languages. It is used in subordinate clauses referring to a hypothetical future event or state – either adverbial clauses (usually introduced by se 'if ' or quando 'when') or adjective clauses that modify nouns referring to a hypothetical future entity. atelier; < Lat. suspectum; < Lat. Varias furgonetas de la Policía cargaron e intentaron hacerles frente. cannam → S. caña, P. cana. In those dialects of Portuguese that do regularly use definite articles before proper nouns, the article may be omitted for extra formality, or to show distance in a literary narrative. The Spanish con ('with', com in Portuguese) combines with the prepositional pronouns mí, ti, and sí to form conmigo, contigo, consigo ('with me', 'with you', 'with him-/herself '). Syllable-final m and n are still written down to indicate nasalization, even though they are no longer fully pronounced, that is, either [ⁿ] (before obstruents) or elided completely. This also occurred in Old Spanish, but no comparable phenomenon takes place in modern Spanish: However, these tenses are often replaced with others in the spoken language. Várias viaturas policiais intervieram e tentaram confrontá-las. Such a construction is not used in Spanish or in European Portuguese. Apart from that, while "quem" is invariable, Spanish has both the singular "quién" and the plural "quiénes.". In Spanish, use of the definite article is optional with some countries: (la) China, (el) Japón, (la) India, (la) Argentina, (el) Ecuador, (el) Perú, (el) Uruguay, (el) Paraguay, (el) Brasil, (los) Estados Unidos, etc. avaritia; probably < Lat. loge < Frankish laubja; < Lat. Canarian: This dialect is spoken mostly in Spanish areas of the Canary Islands. It is now much influenced by standard Castilian Spanish. bestius; < Lat. This may give the false impression that a Portuguese verb is pronominal when it is not. fuente) or garrafa 'bottle' (Port. Expressions of liking typically require two arguments: (1) a person who likes something (sometimes called the "experiencer"), and (2) something that the person likes (sometimes called the "theme"). This kind of contraction is much more extensive in Portuguese, involving the prepositions a ('to'), de ('of, from'), em ('in'), and por ('for') with articles and demonstratives regardless of number or gender. A Spanish speaker and a Portuguese speaker that have never been exposed to each other’s languages will understand around 45% of what the other says. Portuguese is similar to Spanish in many ways (89% similarity) so with enough patience, you could reach understanding. Likewise, nariz 'nose' is feminine in Spanish and masculine in Portuguese. Portuguese uses e [i] before all words. In fact, Galician is a co-dialect of Portuguese. It should be rewritten in Portuguese without any cardinal number. Here's how to keep them all straight. rosmaninho or rosmarinho means 'lavender'), 'rosemary'; Sp. Since Spanish does not differentiate between mid-open and mid-close vowels and nasal vowels, it uses only one accent, the acute. The conjunction "and" in Spanish is y (pronounced [i] before a consonant, [j] before a vowel) before all words except those beginning with an [i] sound (spelled i- or hi-). aduana, Port. Spanish has no such alternative. But All of Europe Mix all the countries, but Portugal they have the oldest borders in Europe, and it really was the only country to remain unconquered by anyone. In Portuguese, unstressed vowels have been more unstable, both diachronically (across time) and synchronically (between dialects), producing new vowel sounds. 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. In European Spanish, as well as some Andean dialects, as in English, the present perfect is normally used to talk about an action initiated and completed in the past, which is still considered relevant or influential in the present moment. Usually, in Portuguese, there is no preposition between the helping verb and the main verb: Vamos cantar (present tense of ir + infinitive). clāmāre → S. llamar, P. chamar The default object pronouns o/a/os/as change to lo/la/los/las when they follow a verb that ends in ⟨r⟩, ⟨s⟩ or ⟨z⟩, and to no/na/nos/nas when they follow a verb that ends in a nasal sound. Likewise, Galician, another dialect of Spain, did not develop from Castilian but instead is a dialect of Portuguese. As shown, the personal infinitive can be used at times to replace both the impersonal infinitive and the subjunctive. Spanish uses the definite article with all geographical names when they appear with an adjective or modifying phrase, as in the following examples: la España medieval 'medieval Spain', el Puerto Rico prehispánico 'pre-Hispanic Puerto Rico', el Portugal de Salazar 'Portugal during Salazar's dictatorship', etc. Catalan is mutually unintelligible with Spanish. burrŭla), refinado; esmerado See Brazilian Portuguese. It uses a more day-to-day language and has few cognates, and, consequently, the intelligibility ends up being very low for speakers who have no knowledge of the other language. Most languages spoken in Spain belong to the Romance language family, of which Spanish is the only language which has official status for the whole country. 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) b… Spanish, in the analogous if-clauses, uses the present indicative[citation needed], and in the cuando- and adjective clauses uses the present subjunctive. Portuguese has a lot of slurred sounds, it is a very fluid language, as opposed to Spanish, where words are more deliberate. Various word endings are consistently different in the two languages. The medieval g sound (similar to that of French) was replaced with s in the 14th-15th centuries (cf. And the preposition a combines with the "distal" demonstratives (those that begin with a-) to form àquele, àquilo, etc. You have got to admit that when you hear someone speaking Spanish, visions of sunny, welcoming destinations start springing to mind, don’t they? Spanish or Portuguese? and Port. Spanish vs Portuguese: The Languages You Already Speak. There are several Spanish dialects. A first approach to Andalusian dialects of Spanish. The expected pattern for the former would be *le lo dio, but such a construction does not exist. See the contrast with Spanish in the following example: As this example suggests, the Portuguese present perfect is often closer in meaning to the English present perfect continuous. plēnum → S. lleno, P. cheio (also pleno), 'to call' – Brazilian Portuguese Pronunciation for Speakers of Spanish, Common words between Portuguese and Spanish, Teaching Portuguese to Spanish-Speaking Learners (L1, L2 and Heritage) through Readings, https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Comparison_of_Portuguese_and_Spanish&oldid=999855595, Articles lacking reliable references from May 2019, Articles that may contain original research from January 2010, All articles that may contain original research, Articles containing Spanish-language text, Articles containing Portuguese-language text, Articles containing explicitly cited English-language text, Articles with unsourced statements from August 2016, Articles with unsourced statements from June 2016, Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License, 'himself' / 'herself' / 'itself' / 'themselves', /'oneself" /'yourself" / 'itself' / 'themselves', to disrupt, to get in the way (of someone/smthg), Both Port. In Portuguese it is used before ⟨a⟩, ⟨o⟩, and ⟨u⟩ (including nasals), and never at the beginning or end of any word. Spanish pronunciation makes no such distinction. Similarly, the preterite of andar is regular in Portuguese (andaste), but irregular in Spanish (anduviste, 'you went'). Portuguese has five phonemic nasal vowels (/ɐ̃/, /ẽ/, /ĩ/, /õ/, /ũ/), which, according to historical linguistics, arose from the assimilation of the nasal consonants /m/ and /n/, often at the end of syllables. In Spanish, the compound perfect is constructed with the auxiliary verb haber (< Latin habēre). In other words, these Latin languages are cousins. alfombra, Port. Llanito Only in Spanish do interrogatives and exclamations use the question mark or exclamation point respectively at the beginning of a sentence. alface (in Port. The dialect of Piauí, in northeastern Brazil is the closest dialect to European Portuguese in Brazil. Discrepancies are especially pervasive in words that contain i or u in their last syllable. canis), cachorro (< Lat. 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'). According to the Foreign Service Institute's School of Language Studies, learning Spanish or Portuguese takes roughly the same amount of time for native English speakers. 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. Similarly, el puente 'bridge', el dolor 'pain', or el árbol 'tree' are masculine nouns in Modern Spanish, whereas a ponte, a dor, and a árvore are feminine in Portuguese. In fact, most yes/no questions in Portuguese are written the same as a statement except for the final question mark. extrāneus; < Lat. Unfortunately Spanish yes, is a mix of French, since it was conquered by France. alcatifa, 'carpet'; Sp. cocca; < Old Fr. In Brazilian Portuguese, in the vast majority of cases, the only difference between final -e and -i is the stress, as both are pronounced as /i/. 'footwear'. Portuguese usually uses the acute accent ( ´ ), but also uses the circumflex accent ( ˆ ) on the mid-close vowels ⟨ê⟩ and ⟨ô⟩ and the stressed (always nasal in Brasil) ⟨â⟩. Esa manipulación que recibe la voz son las "articulaciones". [134] Portuguese knows no such restriction, so that stressed pronouns referring to inanimate subjects can either be used or dropped: The use of second-person pronouns differs dramatically between Spanish and Portuguese, and even more so between European and Brazilian Portuguese. The Spanish construction, se lo dio, means either '[He/She] gave it to [him/her]' or '[He/She] gave it to himself/herself'. peculiāris), enfermedad, achaque, plaga, peste However, European Portuguese and Spanish distinguish between going somewhere for a short while versus a longer stay, especially if it is an intended destination, in the latter case using para instead of a. Thus, nós [ˈnɔs] or [ˈnɔʃ] 'we' vs nos [nus] or [nuʃ] 'us', avô [aˈvo] 'grandfather' vs avó [aˈvɔ] 'grandmother', se [si] or [sɨ] 'itself, himself, herself' reflexive pronoun vs sé [ˈsɛ] 'seat, headquarters' vs sê [ˈse] 'to be' 2nd person imperative. Meanwhile, Spanish maintains many more irregular forms in the future and conditional: saldré 'I will leave', pondré 'I will put', vendré 'I will come', diré 'I will say', etc. 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. Likewise, Basque, another dialect of Spain, did not develop from Castilian but instead is thought to have evolved independently from a prehistoric language, making Basque one of the oldest and most original languages in the world. Arguments in linguistics are expressions that enable a verb to complete its meaning. For example, Se ficou em Paris... means 'If one stayed in Paris...' When the conjunction se precedes a pronominal verb, it is common to have a double se in the sentence, such as Se se esqueceu da sua senha... 'If you forgot your password...'. In other cases, nasal vowels are marked with a tilde (ã, õ). Portuguese is the country's official language, while English is the second most common language. Galician language, Romance language with many similarities to the Portuguese language, of which it was historically a dialect. The Classical Latin vowels /e/-/eː/ and /o/-/oː/ were correspondingly lowered in Spanish and turned into diphthongs /je̞/ and /we̞/. After English, Spanish is the second-most studied language in the world. Other optional contractions include de with aqui > daqui ('from here'). Spanish not Portuguese, but if Portuguese, Brazilian not European. Note that this did not happen in old Spanish: diógelo, 'he gave it to him', dióselo, 'he gave it to himself'. In the accents where postvocalic sibilants are always post-alveolar, such as those of Florianópolis and Rio de Janeiro, or in the accents influenced by them, any unstressed /a ~ ɐ/, [e̞ ~ ɛ] and [o̞ ~ ɔ] may be raised (like in Portugal), to [ɐ], [i] and [u], respectively. have 'toxicomania' for drug addiction, Originally, the letters ⟨b⟩ and ⟨v⟩ stood for distinct sounds pronounced. This has in turn caused the original third-person possessive seu, sua to shift to primarily second-person use, alongside the appearance of a new third-person possessive dele, dela (plural deles, delas, "their") that follows the noun (thus paraphrases such as o carro dele "his car", o carro dela "her car"). In colloquial language, most Portuguese would state trá-lo-á as vai trazê-lo ('going to bring it') or irá trazê-lo ('will bring it'). Without the accent, as in Spanish, the last syllable would be a diphthong: Paraguai (Portuguese) and Paraguay (Spanish) 'Paraguay'. The grave accent ( ` ) is also used in Portuguese to indicate the contraction of the preposition a (to) with a few words beginning with the vowel a, but not to indicate stress. A common example are nouns ended in -aje in Spanish, which are masculine, and their Portuguese cognates ending in -agem, which are feminine. 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. Quite common in both languages are the prepositions a (which often translates as "to") and para (which often translates as "for"). volāre → S. volar, P. voar, oculum → S. ojo, P. olho In Spanish hasta has the same meaning and function. Arabic is the source of a few personal given names and numerous derivative surnames and place names in Spain, including the following: Almudena,[115] Azucena,[116] Carmen,[117] Guadalupe,[118] Mohamed,[119] Soraya,[120] Zulema,[121] Abenamir, Abengoa, Avengoa, Abenójar, Alcalá,[122] Almuzara, Acebrón, Aceituno, Aceitón, Aguera,[123] Aguiló, Alamar, Alamino, Alanzor, Albarral, Albarrán, Albo, Albaicín, Alcantud, Alcazar,[124] Alcudia, Alguacil, Allobar, Almaguer, Almandós, Almandoz, Almería, Almodóvar, Almoravit, Ambasil, Amor, Andujar, Aranda, Ayas, Aias, Benayas, Bardaxí, Benajara, Benameji,[125] Benasar, Bennásar, Benavides, Bendala, Calatayud, Cervatos, Ceuta, Cid, Córdoba, Dris, Faulí, Gálvez, Godesteiz, Granada, Guadalupe,[126] Gudiel, Hispán, Yllán, Illán, Illanes, Jaén, Madrid, Manzaneque,[127] Mezquita, Mezquitas, Mudarra, Palacios, Palomoque, Pascual, Quirino, Toledo, Trujillo, Valls, Zanata, Zaratan, Zarate,[128] Zaratin, Zegrí, Cegrí, Zorita.[129]. boutique < Lat. Example: calzado (Sp. Note, though, in the first example, para could be used in Portuguese if in contrast to a very brief period of time. The manipulations that the voice undergoes are the "joints". A consequence of this is that words that are pronounced alike in both languages are written according to different accentuation rules. The traditional Spanish alphabet had 28 letters, while the Portuguese had 23. Several loaded police vans attempted to confront them. In Portuguese this process not only applies to the pronouns mim, ti, and si (giving comigo, contigo, and consigo), but also is extended to nós and, in those varieties which use it, vós, producing connosco (conosco in Brazilian Portuguese) and convosco. Galician is spoken by some four million people as a home language, mostly in the autonomous community of Galicia, aptitūdo; capacĭtātis), tienda, lona, toldo (< Lat. Meanwhile, these close allophones do not occur in the northern and eastern accents, where postvocalic /r/ has a "hard" allophone (velar, uvular, or glottal) and postvocalic sibilants may be, consistently or not, post-alveolar [ʃ, ʒ, ɕ, ʑ]. A class of false friends between the two languages is composed of the verb forms with endings containing -ra-, such as cantara, cantaras, cantáramos, and so on. Portuguese is another language that has a wide geographic spread. This makes the written language look deceptively similar to Spanish. Although it is mostly an allophonic variation, some dialects have developed minimal pairs that distinguish the stressed variants from the unstressed ones. ), calçado (Port.) Phonetic vowel nasalization occurs in Spanish—vowels may get slightly nasalized in contact with nasal consonants—but it is not phonemically distinctive. colher and colheita, both from Lat. Edit: Galician has more of a fundamental genetic relationship to Portuguese, not to Spanish. [137] All four of these prepositions join with the definite article, as shown in the following table: 1These Portuguese contractions include some potential "false friends" for the reader of Spanish, such as no (Port. 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. 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"). Portuñol or portunhol – a dialect based on code-switching between Spanish and Portuguese – has resulted from prolonged contact between the inhabitants of border areas. pectum → S. pecho, P. peito, fābulāre → S. hablar, P. falar La tensión se masticaba entre los agentes, rodeados de hogueras. Here are a few examples: Conversely, there are a few examples where a word of Arabic origin is used in Portuguese but not in Spanish, such as: Sp. In a few cases Spanish and Portuguese have both borrowed different Arabic-derived words for the same meaning, such as: Sp. Peculiar to early Spanish (as in the Gascon dialect of Occitan, possibly due to a Basque substratum) was the loss of Latin initial f- whenever it was followed by a vowel that did not diphthongize. 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. rarus; < Lat. Examples include names such as Port. The languages of Spain (Spanish: lenguas de España), or Spanish languages (Spanish: lenguas españolas), are the languages spoken or once spoken in Spain.. Llanito: This dialect is spoken mostly in Gibraltar. paparazzo 'paparazzo', etc. 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. The Spanish irregular verb forms in -oy (e.g., doy "I give", estoy "I am", soy "I am", voy "I go") correspond to Portuguese forms in -ou (e.g., dou, estou, sou, vou). departimentum; < Lat. leituga means 'catsear'), 'lettuce'; or more commonly used in Portuguese than in Spanish although the word exists in both languages, such as: chafariz 'fountain' (Port.fonte, Sp. Both languages use diacritics to mark the stressed syllable of a word whenever it is not otherwise predictable from spelling. The manipulations that the voice undergoes are the "joints". The Portuguese contractions mentioned thus far are obligatory. αὐτο), auto repair centre, repair garage, workshop, empresa; compañía; sociedad, negocio (< Lat. 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. cisclare; < Lat. Brazil is a country of 210 million inhabitants and they almost all speak Brazilian Portuguese (98%). Despite differences in phonology, grammar, and vocabulary, Portuguese is often mutually intelligible with Spanish.There are four main Portuguese dialect groups, all mutually intelligible: (1) Central, or Beira, (2) Southern (Estremenho), including Lisbon, Alentejo, and Algarve, (3) Insular, including the dialects of Madeira and the Azores, and (4) Brazilian. This increased vowel reduction is also present in accents of the Brazilian Northeast, particularly from Alagoas to Piauí.
