Chapter 1.2 Dimensions of register variation in Brazilian Portuguese
In this chapter, we present an MD analysis of Brazilian Portuguese, based on the Brazilian Register Variation Corpus, comprising 48 different spoken and written registers. The previous literature on text varieties in Brazilian Portuguese focuses on specific aspects of one or at most a few varieties at a time and, therefore, does not present a comprehensive picture of register use in Brazilian Portuguese. In this study, we attempt to fill this gap by employing the MD framework, which enabled us to account for a large number of different registers, based on a wide range of linguistic features. The analysis revealed six dimensions of variation, which are presented and discussed in this chapter.
