The papers published in this issue of the Journal of Portuguese Linguistics resulted from a binational project – Português Europeu e Português Brasileiro: Unidade e Diversidade na Passagem do Milénio (European and Brazilian Portuguese: Unity and Diversity at the Turn of the Century) –, launched in the year 2000, and coordinated by the guest editors and authors of this foreword, with the sponsorship of CNPq, in Brazil, and ICCTI, in Portugal. This comparative project has focused on the two best-established varieties of Portuguese – European (EP) and Brazilian (BP) – and involved linguists from both Brazil and Portugal. Its partial results were presented at annual meetings of the Portuguese Linguistics Association (APL) and the Brazilian Linguistics Association (ABRALIN). Moreover, part of the work on comparative semantics that was produced within the project appeared in issue 3.1 (2004) of this journal.
