Linguistic variation in European Portuguese: the case of the Portuguese from Azores

Irene Maria F. Blayer

Abstract


The aim of this study is to present some phonetic particularities of the Portuguese language spoken in the Azores islands. These will be only observations concerning the vocalic characteristic in those islands, mainly in the St. Michel Island, Western Part. No organized view of such a complex topic should be expected, as no methodological analysis has been conducted so far.
