Portuguese (lexicon size over 1.65 million words, selection March 2013) (4x) Iberian and Brazilian Portuguese are very different in terms of use of verb tenses and idiom.

Therefore Iberian and Brazilian versions accord- ing to the previous and acordo ortográfico, have been compiled. These versions include respelling either between Iberian Portuguese and Brazilian Portuguese or between the previous and acordo ortográfico.
