What Is sertanejo dialect  In Brazil

The sertanejo dialect is a dialect of Brazilian Portuguese . It is spoken in the southwest, center-south and east of Mato Grosso , northwest of Mato Grosso do Sul , in central-north Goiás , and in small portions of western Minas Gerais . [ 1 ] [ 2 ] [ 3 ] [ 4 ] [ 5 ]

This dialect is a development of the caipira dialect , which was strongly influenced by the migratory waves that ran towards the Brazilian Midwest, mainly after the construction of Brasília and the opening of the Belém-Brasília and BR-364 highways . The cultural interaction of immigrants who speak the dialects of Minas Gerais , southern and northeastern Brazil has built what is now known as the sertanejo dialect. Even today, large portions of Goiás and Mato Grosso do Sul still speak the country dialect.

In addition to the never palatalization of fricatives (/ s / and / z /) and the always palatalization of / di / e / ti / in words like “instinct” [ĩs’tʃĩtu] and “from” [‘dezdʒi] (characteristics of others dialects), we also see in this dialect a certain alternation between the deaf “r” (/ ɾ /) and alveolar approximate “r” (/ ɹ /), where, for example, the word “door” can be spoken as much [‘pɔɾtɐ ] as [‘pɔɹtɐ], depending on the region, its surroundings and its occupation history. [ 9 ]
