Usage notes edit

The word Portugal is masculine when referred to by adjectives, but it can never be indicated by articles. Therefore phrases like "o Portugal", "no Portugal" etc. don't exist; articleless forms such as "Portugal" and "em Portugal" are used instead. This peculiarity applies to a few other place names such as Angola, Moçambique, Cabo Verde, São Tomé e Príncipe, Essuatíni, Macau, Timor-Leste, Andorra, Israel, São Salvador, Aragão, Castela and Leão. It also applies to most cities.
