Some facts about the Portuguese language

Portuguese is a Western Romance language characterized by its nasalization, by the difficulty to distinguish the end and the beginning of words and by its complicated phonetics.

Brazilian Portuguese is set apart not only by accents and colloquial language, but also by its spelling and grammatical rules.

Portuguese is a Romance language spoken by about 220 million people, mainly in Portugal and Brazil, but also in Angola, Mozambique ( Moçambique), Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau (Guiné-Bissau), São Tomé and Príncipe, East Timor (Timor-Leste), Equatorial Guinea and Macao. There are also communities of Portuguese speakers in Goa, Daman and Diu in India, and in Malacca in Malaysia.

Portuguese comes from Latin, which was brought to the Iberian Peninsula by Roman soldiers, settlers and merchants from 218 BC. The first records of a clearly Portuguese language appear in administrative documents dating from the 9th century AD. In 1290 King Denis decreed that Portuguese, then simply called "the common language", should be known as the Portuguese language and should be used officially.

In 1916 Portugal adopted a reformed Portuguese spelling (nova ortografia), in which words were written more in accordance to their pronunciation. A slightly modified form was adopted in Brazil in 1943 and revised in 1970. In 2009, a new spelling was introduced in Brazil that aims to unify the written Portuguese of all Lusophone countries. The date for adoption in the other Portuguese-speaking countries has not yet been set.
