A majority of linguists and intellectuals consider Galician-Portuguese to form a unified linguistic group. According to this point of view, modern Galician and Portuguese form a part of the same linguistic system, albeit with slightly dissimilar written norms, similar to the way in which Portuguese differs in Portugal and Brazil, and English differs in the USA and England. The official position in Galicia, however, is to consider Galician and Portuguese as independent languages even though they share certain similarities.
