Introduction This paper aims to present the main aspects and results of a research study into the lexical relationship between European Portuguese (EP) and Brazilian Portuguese (BP). There are two main issues: (i) to know whether these two national varieties of the Portuguese language have gone through a process of lexical convergence or divergence in the last 60 years; and (ii) to find out how internal linguistic parameters influence these global conver1 gence or divergence trends.

In the first place, with more than 61% of explained variation (see the figure indicated by Adjusted R squared), the model may be considered a good one. e. a model in which the effect of the explanatory factors is not taken into account. In the second place, all the factors that we included as explanatory variables appear to have a significant effect. ) This is a crucial finding, because it corroborates our initial and fundamental assumption that concept features, and more specifically, heterodox concept features, influence lexical heterogeneity.
