Abstract

This paper takes on two main objectives. The first is to present and depict the project Frontespo – Frontera
hispano-portuguesa: documentación lingüística y bibliográfica [Spanish-Portuguese frontier: linguistic and
bibliographic documentation], which aims at producing a comprehensive linguistic documentation of the frontier
area between Portugal and Spain. The second objective is to study the stressed vowel systems of a specific border
area located in the central interior part of Portugal, which, despite not having been subject to a detailed depiction
up to this day, is decisive in understanding the constitution of Portuguese central-southern dialects as a whole, as
recent studies have shown. The results are clear in (i) allowing for the description of the area’s vowel systems and
(ii) improving our view on the history of central-southern Portuguese. This study therefore exemplifies the type of
linguistic approach that a project like Frontespo allows for and, more importantly, the need for new, comprehensive
language documentation projects in Portugal.
