Vocab

Visit to the local library

Nice stop at the local university library tonight.  The Portuguese section is dwarfed by most other languages, but even so, I found more there than I ever found online including some textbook manuscipts that were probably never published.  As for the picture below, I just liked the cover.

Another book I found interesting dealt with bad words (palavarões).  If you were ever interested in seeing the definition of “puta”, see below 😉

  1. Voce poderia fazer um post sobre mais palavrões brasileiros, seria engraçado e útil. Já que a maioria dos brasileiros conhece a expressão “FUCK” e suas derivações.
    Palavrões brasileiros comuns:
    Viado, bixa, boiola, viadinho = gay/fag
    Mané, imbecil, idiota, retardado, babaca*, vacilão* = jackass/fool/idiot/ (*pouco usado)
    Vadia, puta, safada = bitch/ dirty girl
    gostosa*= hot/sexy woman (*nao chega a ser um palavrão, mas não é usado em conversas formais)
    att,
