Usage notes[edit]

The word Portugal is masculine when referred to by adjectives, but it can never be indicated by articles. Therefore phrases like "o Portugal", "no Portugal" etc. don't exist; articleless forms such as "Portugal" and "em Portugal" are used instead. This peculiarity applies to a few other place names such as Angola, Moçambique, Cabo Verde, São Tomé e Príncipe, Essuatíni, Macau, Timor Leste, Andorra, Israel, São Salvador, Aragão, Castela and Leão. It also applies to most cities.
