Florianopolitan dialect, pejoratively called manezês or manezinho, is a variety of Brazilian Portuguese heavily influenced by (and often considered an extension of) the Azorean dialect. It is spoken by inhabitants of Florianópolis (the capital of Santa Catarina state) of full or predominant Azorean descent. and also in cities neighbouring the capital, albeit with slight variations. The dialect was originally brought by immigrants from Azores who founded several settlements in the Santa Catarina island in the 18th Century onwards. Due to the isolation of these settlements, the Florianopolitan dialect differs significantly from both standard European and South American Portuguese.
