In September 2000, Madalena Cruz-Ferreira and colleagues contributed a set of 1148 references on the acquisition of Portuguese. These have now been added to CHILDES/BIB
All entries include the code "PortugueseBib" in the Keywords field, so that the bibliography can be easily retrieved through the EndNote search function. In Reference Web Poster, Use "Advanced Search" and then "Keyword" as "Portuguese." Additional keywords, relevant to each reference, are included in this field too.
Most references include a URL, where the reference itself and/or more recent additions to this research area can be found. Several of the Portuguese (.pt) and Brazilian (.br) websites are accessible in English too. In cases of conflicting information on a particular reference, say, from a website and from a personal communication by the author(s), the authors' data took priority.
Putting together information of this kind is not a one-person assignment. My most sincere thanks are due to the following colleagues, whose time, support and generous willingness to share knowledge, contacts, and their own research, made this undertaking possible:
Thanks are also due to the Comunidade Virtual da Linguagem, whose network provided me with invaluable information. Any inaccuracy included in the references is my entire responsibility. I will be happy to receive feedback regarding any corrections and additions to the bibliography.
