Brazilian Portuguese was greatly influenced by contributions from Yoruba which was introduced to the Brazilian territory by the influx of West African slaves. During the 18th century, other differences developed as Brazilian Portuguese failed to adopt linguistic changes taking place in Portugal. After Brazil became an independent nation in 1822, Brazilian Portuguese was also heavily influenced by immigrants from Italy, Japan, and Germany, particularly in the central and southern parts of the country. In the 20th century, the split between the Portuguese and Brazilian variants heightened as new words for technological innovations were incorporated differently into the two languages. Brazilian Portuguese varies from that of its European cousin in both its vocabulary and pronunciation, yet, remarkably given its huge size, standardized Brazilian speech is consistent throughout the nation. English words with a Brazilian Portuguese origin include tapioca, piranha, petunia, cashew, macaw and toucan. There are some 150 million speakers of Portuguese living in Brazil today.
