Safa Abou Chahla Jubran Ph. D.

Photos from the signing ceremony of her book,
Arabic and Portuguese: contrastive phonology.

    The book is based on her PHD thesis defended two years ago and it is a description of the phonological system of both
    languages Arabic and Portuguese. Beside the description, she contrasted the data in order to predict the difficulties that could be faced by the Brazilian students who want to learn Arabic (standard language) and suggested methods for both teachers and students to deal with them.
    For that she analyzed several softwares written for the analysis of speech and could make the CD which is attached to the book, containing a resume of the data analyzed and with it she wanted to show how useful could be the dialogue between two fields of research, linguistics and computation.
