EtymologyEdit

PronunciationEdit

Proper nounEdit

Portugal m (gender only indicated by adjectives, see usage note below)

  1. Portugal (a country in western Europe)

Usage notesEdit

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, Macau, Timor Leste, Andorra, Israel, São Salvador, Aragão, Castela and Leão.
