Product Details

About the Author

Professor Earl W. Thomas has began teaching Spanish and Portuguese at Vanderbilt University in 1947. A Phi Beta Kappa graduate of the University of Illinois (AB in Spanish 1936), he earned his master's degree (1937) there also. Ten years later he received the doctorate in Romance languages at University of Michigan. During the years in between his advanced degrees, Mr. Thomas taught Spanish and Portuguese at the University of Michigan, lived in Brazil as an Exchange Fellow, taught English at the Instituto Brasil-Estados Unidos in Rio de Janeiro, and served with the U.S. Coast Guard in the Pacific. He has also published NEW PERSPECTIVES OF BRAZIL with Vanderbilt Press in 1966.


A true scholarly grammar of the particular variety of relaxed spoken Brazilian Portuguese which Professor Thomas has analyzed better than any living linguist.
--Charles L. Eastlack,
A valuable addition to the meager body of material now available to teachers of spoken Brazilian Portuguese.
--The Modern Language Journal
An important stimulus to the growing interest in Luso-Brazilian studies and a contribution to the profession.
Clearly written and featuring an abundance of exercises and readings. It is particularly well suited to students who are seeking a concise introductory text focusing on modern Brazilian Portuguese.
--Earl E. Fitz
Every teacher of Portuguese should have a copy of Earl Thomas' book.
--John A. Hutchins,
